On 5 September 2018 the UlCC-Asia Regional Office (UICC-ARO) convened the second Japan Public-Private Dialogue Forum at the House of Councilors Members' Building as a follow-up to the previous meeting held at United Nations University in Tokyo in April 2018. Senior representatives of government, academia and industry met to discuss the progress made since April, noting the significance of the Japanese government having included specific reference to cancer in its revised basic policy on the Asia Health and Wellbeing Initiative, which was adopted in July 2018. The meeting provided an opportunity for all stakeholders to discuss ways forward for improving access to cancer care, with the WHO Cancer Report and other global initiatives in mind.
