Purpose of the Alliance
As Japan's population ages, the 2025 problem and the need to extend healthy life expectancy are becoming more and more important. The Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare (MHLW) has announced that by 2040, healthy life expectancy will be increased by at least three years from 2016 for both men and women, to 75 years or more.
In order to achieve this plan, the government will also utilize "new methods" such as "creating a naturally healthy environment" and "mechanisms to encourage behavior change.
In the area of the elderly and patients, Austance and Medical Note will leverage the knowledge of both companies to provide optimal solutions while promoting initiatives to extend healthy life expectancy, from preventing frailty and maintaining cognitive function to addressing heart failure and stroke, which have become social issues.
