4. Social contributions 4-1 Local contributions

The Japanese authors of this work have engaged in several efforts related to the Republic of Kazakhstan.

Exchange students from Kochi University to the Republic of Kazakhstan and their faculty advisor (one of the authors of this work) visited the deputy mayor of Kochi City in Kochi City Hall to describe the purpose and background of the exchange [62,47]. Studies recommended concluding agreements on exchanges between Kochi University and Kazakh universities (academic exchanges and student exchanges) [57,39]. Efforts by the government, non- governmental organizations (NGOs), and private organizations and collaborative efforts in relevant areas by relevant agencies truly represent community-wide efforts.


The Japanese authors of this work are also lecturing on the Republic of Kazakhstan.

4-2 International contributions

The Japanese authors of this work have visited the Kazakh embassy in Japan, the Japanese embassy in Kazakhstan, and the international program center in Astana. The authors have promoted agreements on exchanges and sought cooperation from Kazakh universities and agencies to conduct joint research [58- 65].


This work has described studies conducted by the authors and social efforts with an eye toward future collaboration with the Republic of Kazakhstan (mainly with Semey and SMU). SMU has endeavored to conduct further research in public health over the past few years.

The current authors have previously studied “collaboration between public health and clinical medicine” from several perspectives. The most prominent characteristics of public health research conducted by the current authors are that it benefits society and that it discusses public health in in terms of social medicine and clinical medicine. SMU previously emphasized clinical medicine, though the current authors have approaches in multiple areas, i.e.

psychiatry, surgery, and internal medicine. Various courses in basic medicine at SMU continue to conduct experiments as part of basic medical research. The current authors conduct basic medical research but focus on collaborative studies in basic medicine and clinical medicine. Social contributions made by the current authors are both local and international contributions.

Studies over the past few years have suggested the importance of collaborative research and social contributions [45-46].


The current work has suggested 4 criteria for future collaborative research between Semey and Kochi, Hiroshima, and Shimane, i.e. between SMU and Kochi University, Hiroshima University, Hiroshima International University, and Shimane University. In specific terms, these criteria are:

“1. Collaboration between public health and clinical medicine”,

“2. Studies from the perspective of clinical medicine:

Psychiatry, surgery, and internal medicine”,

“3. Basic medical research. Collaboration between basic medicine and clinical medicine: Genetic research, research in basic medicine and clinical medicine focusing on microglia, and particle science and the effects of radiation (including aspects of physics)”, and

“4. Social contributions”.

That research can be conducted at SMU or its affiliated hospitals, and novel studies will be conducted. SMU and Kochi University, Hiroshima University, Hiroshima International University, and Shimane University can conduct joint research, implement social efforts, and continue conducting studies in accordance with the 4 criteria.

Doing so should improve the level of research at each university and improve research capabilities through joint research.

That research could be extended within the framework of Semey, Kochi, Hiroshima, and Shimane, and that could lead to advances in research in the Republic of Kazakhstan and Japan.
