Toward a National Mobilization: The Establishment of National Health Insurance

  • Yoneyuki Sugita
Chapter

Abstract

This chapter discusses the origin of the National Health Insurance. This newly established insurance is qualitatively different from the Health Insurance. The National Health Insurance was an important feature of a shift in Japan’s status in world affairs and a change in the Japanese concept of the appropriate form of state. As Japan’s status in world affairs transformed from one among many members in a West-led world in the 1920s to a status of leadership in an independent regional system in Asia in the late 1930s, Japan abandoned features of a liberal state and opted for a centralized state. One of the important demonstrations of this change was the establishment of the National Health Insurance.
