API established “The Independent Investigation Commission on the Japanese Government’s Response to COVID-19” in July 2020 to review how Japan prepared for and responded to the COVID-19 crisis during the first half of 2020.

The report titled “The Independent Investigation Commission on the Japanese Government’s Response to COVID-19: Report on Best Practices and Lessons Learned” was originally published in Japanese in October 2020.

Under the guidance of the Commission, which consisted of four leading experts, the Working Group (WG) composed of 19 experts in medicine, law, public policy, crisis response, health security, and international relations, conducted 102 interviews with 84 government officials and experts, including the former Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, the former Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga (currently the PM), the former Minister of Health, Labour and Welfare Katsunobu Kato (currently the Chief Cabinet Secretary), and the Minister of State for Economic and Fiscal Policy Yasutoshi Nishimura, as well as numerous other senior government officials who provided insight on the background of the events.
