The Department of Epidemiology and Clinical Research conducts a wide range of epidemiological and clinical research and work related to tuberculosis (TB) control and national tuberculosis surveillance in Japan. Currently we have 5 research staff, and 2 supporting staff.
Our mission is to conduct research and works which contribute to national and global efforts in fighting TB.
The Department’s three areas of activity are research, development of monitoring tools, and international cooperation.
The Division of Epidemiological Surveillance within the Department supports development, improvement and operation of the electronic Japan Tuberculosis Surveillance system (JTBS), by closely working with the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare. The Division also conducts series of analyses of the surveillance data – these are fed-back into action through publishing of monthly and annual statistical reports.
The Department also runs the Tuberculosis Surveillance Center, which is responsible for disseminating our works and other related information, and also for answering enquiries regarding the JTBS and TB statistics, which we receive via phones and through our website.
