March 11 marks 10 years since the unprecedented triple disaster: Great East Japan Earthquake, tsunami and Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant accident. This disaster and the years of recovery work that followed have taught the global community invaluable lessons in the resilience and humanity of the people of Japan. We are taking these lessons with great respect and appreciation.
The Radiation and Health Programme of the World Health Organization (WHO) has strong historic ties and established strong cooperation with several Japanese institutions through the WHO Collaborating Centres (CCs) mechanism: these include the Radiation Effects Research Foundation in Hiroshima, Nagasaki University, the National Institute of Radiological Sciences (QST) in Chiba, and most recently - Fukushima Medical University. These CCs and other institutions - members of the WHO REMPAN network - conduct research and recovery activities in Fukushima and share their results with the global expert community.
This webinar is dedicated to their tireless efforts and will give you a glimpse into the enormous amount of work our colleagues are leading in the areas affected by the Fukushima disaster.
