[TAKEMI PROGRAM] CALL FOR APPLICATIONS!
Takemi Program in International Health Fellowships at the Harvard School of
Public Health

        The Takemi Program in International Health has extended its application
deadline from February 1 to March 1 for the 2000-2001 academic year.  The
Takemi Program seeks applications for a limited number of fellowships for
research and advanced training on critical issues of international health,
especially those relating to developing countries.  This interdisciplinary
program focuses primarily on mobilizing, allocating, and managing scarce
resources to improve health, and creating sound strategies for disease
control and health promotion.  To address these issues, the Program brings
together at Harvard a small group of future leaders from around the world
and from diverse disciplines.  Through its fellowships for highly qualified
individuals the Takemi Program seeks to contribute to institutional
development and to improvement of national health policy as well as to the
advancement of knowledge.  The Program is named for the late Dr. Taro
Takemi, the distinguished physician-scientist, who served for more than 25
years as President of the Japan Medical Association.  Dr. Takemi also
worked energetically to encourage people from many nations to address
common issues, particularly the development and allocation of resources for
health improvement.

The Takemi Program has three major objectives:

--to create better methods for mobilizing and using health resources in
both rich and poor countries.

--to promote cooperative research and comparative analysis of health
policies and programs in different countries, including the promotion of
Essential National Health Research.

--to contribute to individual and institutional development by bringing
together leading health professionals and scholars from many nations for
research and training.
