Survey for TPG Members - Healthcare in Japan

A previous TPG member is working on a team doing research to develop an electronic version of the boshi techo (Mother Child Health Handbook given to pregnant mothers at the ward office). They would like to understand foreign women's perspectives and experiences with health care in Japan.

If you could take a moment to fill in the survey about your health care experiences here, they would be very grateful. This will help them to ensure that they are able to capture the needs of foreign women when they design the materials. If you have questions, please feel free to email me (LPitarys@gmail.com).

Thank you!
