About us

Who we are

Mitsubishi UFJ Research and Consulting (MURC) is a comprehensive think tank/consulting arm of the Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group (the MUFG Group, a universal banking group that represents Japan) and based on three major cities in Japan.

We started to organize one action-oriented public-private partnerships (PPP) consortium “Access to Health” on “Global Health” in 2016. In this consortium, we will exchange information and knowledge and have dialogue to improve and solve the social issues for our global society. Now our consortium has about 90 members from various sectors.

What we think

We respect the global trend and activities on global health. However, we have a thought that we need to consider the importance to handle the issue with more comprehensive approach.
Our target issues are broad. At this moment, we focus more on infectious diseases with a value “we get along/coexist with Infectious Diseases by 2030”. However we are taking a comprehensive approach to improve various health issues, considering nutritious problems, NCDs(non-communicable diseases), health system, and UHC(universal health coverage) as well.

Under this value, even in the case of OUTBREAK of infectious diseases or to face with AMR issues in an ordinary situation, we need to think about how we can/should invest R&D for innovative and adequate products and deliver them to the market, improve the health system and health-related infrastructure, and contribute to our workforce development/ capacity building with cultural respect.

Through Dialogue and Co-creation, we would like to contribute to the global society, improving the global issues, global health.


For 2016 & 2017, we have 4 pillars in our activities: “Closed Seminars,” “Independent Research,” “Action-oriented Working Group,” “Networking with Global Partners”. We are expecting the synergy of the 4 activities and aim to establish a “Global Health Platform” from Japan together with Global Society.

Now we have more than 90 members from various entities: United Nations agencies/Partnerships, Japanese Governmental agencies, International NGOs, Private Companies, Academia, Funding Agencies, etc.
