This program is a graduate program designed to produce global leaders who will play an active role in developing the measures against non-communicable diseases in the Asia-Pacific region.

Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs) constitute a core health issue in the 21st century. The prevalence of NCDs, including cancer, cerebrovascular, and cardiovascular diseases, and their associated risk factors such as diabetes, hypertension, and dyslipidemia, have become particularly serious in Asian emerging countries. The United Nations is collaborating with government officials of various countries and academic institutions recognizing solution of this issue as a mission.

The Graduate Program for Reducing the Burden of NCD in the Asian-Pacific Region aims to educate future global leaders who can take initiative in the development of measures against NCDs in the Asian-Pacific region by utilizing the solid research platform in lifestyle disease epidemiology at Shiga University of Medical Science.
