More than two dozen Diet members from all of the major parties in Japan participate in the FGFJ Diet Task Force.

Co-chaired by Ichiro Aisawa of the Liberal Democratic Party and Motohisa Furukawa of the Democratic Party of Japan, the task force convenes regularly to explore ways to broaden Japan’s role in the fight against communicable diseases and to exchange views with leaders from around the world. FGFJ also organizes overseas study tours for task force members and other interested politicians to visit activities supported by the Global Fund so that they can witness firsthand the challenges posed by communicable diseases and the lifesaving role of Global Fund support.
