Japan funds prog for Technical Personnel Exchange in diagnostic sector

New Delhi, Oct 7 (UNI) To address diagnostic technological differences between India and Japan, a programme approved by the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare in Japan has been introduced in India funded by “The International Promotion of Japan's Healthcare Technologies and Services in 2017" conducted by the National Center for Global Health and Medicine.
The programme, held under the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare, Japan, with the name “Technical Training for Materializing International Diagnostic Business in India” will be conducted by NCGM.

This was announced during a conference on “Indo-Japan Information Exchange-Diagnostic Technologies” in New Delhi yesterday night organised by Konoike Transport Co. Ltd. and J-VPD, Inc.
The programme which will be taken forward by Japanese majors in diagnostic technologies- Konoike Transport and J-VPD, Inc. is also being supported by embassy of Japan in India and Delhi Medical Association and is a part of Japan’s government efforts to push and promote its Healthcare Technologies and Services globally.
On the occasion, Tetsuji Yamada, President, J-VPD, Inc. highlighted Japanese Diagnostic technology and know-how to India and explained how to utilise the diagnostic outsourcing in Japan.
“Indian demand for the medical and diagnostic industries is expanding rapidly. However, still there are many major issues to be solved which are test accuracy, quality, cost and lead-time control of transportation due to lack of technologies, manpower and facilities in the sophisticated area of Genetic testing or Chromosome inspection,” he added.

Yamada added, “Under the technical training programme nearly 10 trainees will be engaged from Indian medical organisation in December, 2017. We will arrange some visits to diagnostic labs and medical organisations.”
Minoru Amano, Executive Officer, and General Manager of Medical Business Division, Konoike Transport Co., Ltd. said, “India’s healthcare sector is witnessing a double digit growth. But the supply chain is still in its primitive stage. Huge potential exists in diagnostic technologies sector in India. Japan is a big success story and we, in Japan, need to exchange our knowledge and collaborate to move to the next level.”
“Healthcare in India is growing at a very fast pace. It is expected to be 280 billion dollar in size by 2020, growing at a compound annual growth rate of 16 per cent. According to Reports, the medical devices market is estimated to grow organically at 15 percent to 8.6 billion dollar by 2020.
Around 120 doctors and diagnostic experts from Japan and India attended the Conference and exchanged information about their respective countries.
