Nagasaki University established the Graduate School of International Health Development to foster human resources who can contribute to international cooperation, especially in global health issues. These health issues should be placed in the paradigm of poverty resolution, community development and human security, and should be approached from these perspectives. Solutions should also be proposed with full understanding of the politics, economics, society, and culture of the country concerned and also the international situation. Thus, in order to facilitate the training of personnel, the Graduate School of International Health Development was established as an independent graduate school, not linked to any faculty but rather inviting experts from a wide range of fields to teach.
