    Following the Toyako G8 Summit, the working group was encouraged by the Japanese government to translate the 2008 G8 Summit recommendations into concrete proposals for ways in which the G8 member countries and stakeholders should be working to strengthen health systems in developing countries. A task force was set up to serve as a catalyst to synthesize existing initiatives for health system strengthening within the framework of human security. Three research teams were formed within the task force to look in-depth at the entry points for health system strengthening that were proposed at the G8 Summit—the health workforce, health information, and health financing. The research is designed to inform the task force’s exploration of the overall question of how to build integrated health systems that are able to 1) respond to the challenges of both providing primary health care and tackling individual diseases, 2) achieve the health-related Millennium Development Goals, and 3) enhance the human security of people around the world. A major international conference and a series of workshops and meetings were convened in Tokyo and elsewhere around the world, and the resulting discussions formed the basis for a final report was submitted in January 2009 to the Japanese government, which will hand the report to the government of Italy, as the latter prepares to chair the 2009 G8 Summit. Excerpts from the project research were also featured in a special section in The Lancet. This initiative has been organized with generous support from the government of Japan, the World Health Organization, the World Bank, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Rockefeller Foundation, and other stakeholders, although the views laid out in the report do not necessarily represent those of these supporters.
