PHJ is carrying out the East Japan Disaster relief and reconstruction support program.
Donated a fully automatic blood pressure monitor
Since the great earthquake and tsunami hit East Japan on March 11, 2011, PHJ has been carrying out a relief support donation program in cooperation with All Japan Hospital Association (AJHA)(*1) . For three and half months until the end of June 2011, PHJ supported the dispatch of medical teams by AJHA (*2). Since July 2011, PHJ’s support has been directed for reconstruction of the private hospitals in disaster areas. Many medical equipment and facilities of the AJHA member hospitals were damaged by the earthquake and tsunami. In order to extend required medical services in the disaster areas, these damaged hospitals need medical equipment. A large portion of the donation to our East Japan Disaster support program will be used for the purchase of the required medical equipment. Your continued donation will be truly appreciated.


(*1)All Japan Hospital Association (AJHA) consists of 2300 private hospitals in Japan and there are 218 member hospitals in the disaster areas. Since PHJ was established in 1997, AJHA has been extending various types of support to the PHJ projects.
