In Japan, there are people with limited access to medical care. Quite a number of non-Japanese living in Japan find it difficult to go to the hospital because they are "not covered by Health Insurance," they are "not proficient in Japanese language," and so on.

SHARE's Activities
We Want to Convey What We Have Learned Overseas to the Japanese People

One of SHARE's unique features is that we are active in Japan as well as in overseas countries. In particular, we serve people from other countries living in Japan with limited access to medical care by holding mobile counseling services and telephone counseling for medical care.
Our awareness-raising campaigns for the Japanese offer opportunities to learn about the current situation and SHARE's activities overseas. Another activity that we provide is AIDS Education and Workshops arranged for the Japanese public based on the knowledge and information we have accumulated in the overseas countries where we carry out our activities.
