Disease Control and Prevention Center

Disease Control and Prevention

From ancient times, infectious diseases have threatened human health and life.
In our center, we are engaged in development of advanced medical experts and infectious control leader for community or global society to fight against antimicrobial resistance or new infections.

Prevention comes first

What is most important for infection control is primary prevention. In out center, we utilize epidemiology, prevention awareness, health promotion, public communication to support infection control for citizens and medical profession. In travel clinic, we provide necessary knowledge for living overseas safely and vaccination.

Networking and Communication

For effective infection control, assistance with communities, facilities, and other countries is necessary. We make efforts to exchange information and build a collaborative relationship to take prompt action in case of emergency. Also we work to create a reliable platform for people who are engaged in infection control in Japan.

Diagnosis, Treatment, and Care

We accept consultation of infectious disease or suspected cases from both inside and outside of hospital. Please feel free to contact us if you have trouble with any case with its diagnosis or treatment. We are proactive in diagnosis or treatment of imported infectious or difficult case.

Education and Training

A crisis management system of infectious disease from home and abroad becomes more important due to outbreak of Ebola hemorrhagic fever in West Africa and Middle East Respiratory Syndrome in Middle East and South Korea in recent years. We cooperate with other medical institutions and government and develop human resources who can promptly and accurately handle with emerging and re-emerging infectious disease.

Research and Interpretation

Clinical microbiology lab is established in our center as one of the part of DCC. In this laboratory, we pursue research focused on molecular epidemiology that connect basic and clinical field.

Risk assessment and Action

If we leave infectious disease, health hazard may expand from person to society, cross the border and threaten mankind. We develop leaders that can make early detection of infection, evaluate appropriate risk and make rapid response. We cooperate with specialized agencies such as National Institute of Infectious Diseases and National College of Nursing to provide field for study and network.
