      North Charles Street Baltimore, Maryland, USA +1 () [email protected] © Project MUSE. Produced by Johns Hopkins University Press in collaboration with The Sheridan by:   T.R. Reid was a bureau chief in Tokyo and London for The Washington Post. His new book, “The Healing of America: A Global Quest for Better, Cheaper, and Fairer Health Care,” is a systematic study of the health systems in seven countries that was inspired in part by his family’s experiences living overseas and receiving health care abroad.

      1. Introduction. Since the establishment of the universal health insurance scheme in , Japanese citizens have enjoyed a generous system under which the insured members have freedom to access health care facilities and a wide range of medical services for a relatively low co-payment.   According to our latest research, the greatest threat to the health of Japan was surprisingly lower back pain, which can lead to stroke, ischemic heart disease, pneumonia, and other musculoskeletal diseases. Suicide is also among the top 10 burdens to our national health. Another to watch is Alzheimer's disease.

      In The Healing of America: A Global Quest for Better, Cheaper, and Fairer Health Care, author T.R. Reid describes the methods that other industrialized democracies have used to provide health care for citizens for far less than what is spent for health care in the United States. These countries, in doing so for less money, provide universal coverage for all their citizens. [18] Ikegami Naoki ().
