About the Society

The Japanese Society for Hygiene (JSH) aims to promote human health through integration of diverse factors associated with human life and the social and natural environment. We are very proud of the fact that our society has contributed to eliminating health problems, not just in Japan but around the world. Examples of these are beriberi disease and four major environmental diseases: Minamata disease (methylmercury poisoning); Itai-itai disease (cadmium poisoning); Yokkaichi asthma; and Toroku arsenic disease). Our members have made significant achievements in preventive medicine, and they have uncovered new findings in environmental health, thereby stimulating the development of young researchers in social medicine.
