Tadahisa Kagimoto, Director of Public Interest Incorporated Association Mobile Hospital International

Yoshihiro Yamaguchi, Disaster Medical Coordinator, Tokyo Metropolitan Government

(The speech and Q & A will be in English)

"The Need for Hospital Ships in Times of Emergency"

The Princess Diamond cruise ship case has shown some of the unexpected medical emergencies that Japan may face in the age of coronavirus. Mobile Hospital International has been advocating for a floating hospital after witnessing the aftermaths of the 2011 March Earthquake and Tsunami, and is trying to make hospital ships a reality before the summer Olympics – assuming the games go ahead.

President Koichi Sunada, Director Tadahisa Kagimoto and Yoshihiro Yamaguchi will speak about the need for a mobile medical center in times of crisis, and take questions on how this may help Japan during future disasters, manmade or otherwise.
