As a comprehensive health care company, Otsuka Pharmaceutical is involved in various activities with local governments and other entities to promote healthy lifestyles.
Seeking to support the health and wellbeing of people in the prime of their working years, Hyogo Prefecture is advancing various programs that emphasize promotion of overall health and prevention of illness, encouraging corporations or organizations that are proactively engaged in promoting the health of employees and their families to register as Health Promotion Challenge Corporations.
Otsuka Pharmaceutical is already engaged in various initiatives related to nutritional education, healthy longevity, prevention of lifestyle-related diseases, and sports promotions in Hyogo Prefecture. With the signing of the health promotion support agreement, these activities will be further reinforced. Focusing on "supporting health through nutrition," Otsuka will develop support menus such as training programs and dispatch of lecturers for Health Promotion Challenge Corporations, working together with the Hyogo Prefecture government to support health-related activities of local corporations and organizations. Among various support activities related to exercise and sports, the agreement with Hyogo Prefecture is the first entered into by Otsuka that specifically focuses on "supporting health through nutrition."
