About International Health Care Center (ICC)

National Center for Global Health and Medicine (NCGM) has been offering consultation for international patients who wish to visit Japan for medical examination and support for those who need medical care while visiting Japan. To enhance framework for such activities, we established “International Health Care Center (ICC)” on April 1st, 2015 and strive to mitigate language and cultural barriers in healthcare communication.
