Mark Colby has consulted with a broad selection of Japan's healthcare indsustry leaders and undertaken extensive research on what is needed to put the country's complex healthcare system in perspective ans the options available to it. While the ACCJ does not specifically endorse the views expressed in the book, we believe it will serve as a crucial catalyst in clarifying the issues and developing effective policies to protect and improve the health of everyone in Japan."
