Research Interest

Professor Jimba became interested in global health after being influenced by the Japanese global health pioneers during his medical student days in Hamamatsu city. His internship in South India in those days also motivated his later work in this field. After graduation, he worked in the Takayama Red Cross Hospital as a physician for two years, and then worked in the National Institute of Public Health in Tokyo and the Harvard School of Public Health in Boston as an air pollution researcher for seven years. Then, for two years between 1994 and 1996, he worked as the WHO Health Coordinator for Gaza Strip and the West Bank, during which time he encountered various human rights issues. Following this in 1996, he worked on-site as team leader of the 'Nepal School and Community Health Project' set up by JICA and the Japan Medical Association for five years in Nepal. Following his return to Japan in 2002, he started to conduct global health research and teach graduate students at the University of Tokyo
