The final decision on whether to hold the event will be made by May 12.
Dr. Tatsuya Kondo, Chief Medical Officer of Medical Excellence JAPAN, has been selected to receive the American Chamber of Commerce in Japan (ACCJ) Outstanding Achievement Award for his significant contributions to improving
the Japanese healthcare system, helping to harmonize the country’s regulatory system, and contributing to the US–Japan partnership.
Under Dr. Kondo’s leadership, Japan’s Pharmaceutical and Medical Devices Agency (PMDA) evolved into a world-class regulatory body. The PMDA was then able to reverse the drug and device lag that had, for many years, delayed Japanese patients’ access to some of the world’s most innovative medicines and care. His efforts were pivotal in bringing together the business community with government stakeholders to streamline processes and implement much needed reforms. Through skillful application of regulatory science and a keen understanding of the levers of innovation, he contributed greatly to ensuring that patients in Japan have access to innovations that not only save lives but improve quality of life.
The ACCJ membership, Board of Governors, and the Healthcare Committee will present this award to Dr. Kondo at a special luncheon event at which he will reflect on his career achievements and share his thoughts on the future of healthcare in Japan.
