Dear colleagues,
On behalf of International Biophilia Rehabilitation Academy, I am pleased to extend my heartfelt greetings to my friends all over the world in holding IBRC 2016.
The IBRC 2016 will be held in Geneva. The purpose of holding is the following two. 1. we inform the fact that “Overcome the disabilities” is possible to World Health Organization (WHO) with the headquarters of Geneva, and the research of intervention techniques are progressing, 2. We are appealing to make research activities in collaboration with WHO in cooperation in order to sublime “Experience to A Science” from now on,
We are doing our best every day enabling the expectation of the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare and its related corporation, which guided and cooperated the studies usually. And we obtain the support of the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare, and WHO permitted a lecturer's registration this time. We believe that this enterprise was realized by the WHO admitted such efforts and the help of the Ministry. It seems that the first purpose has been attained.
We have continued the study many-year due to the necessity of the rehabilitation medicine restructuring. We clarified the re-acquirement of a walk and/or life independence. And also we clarified the hypothesis and proof of the mechanism of those as much as possible.
Geneva holding in July was the hope of Prof. Suputtitada who is a professor of the Chulalongkorn University of the Kingdom of Thailand and the Chair of ISPRM Women and Health, and who had been designated and had endorsed a chairperson of IBRC 2016 at the beginning. We got hopes and expectant on her who was young and very efficient and full of ambition. It seemed that something happened as a result, she was not able to finish enacting the chairperson of IBRC 2016. However, it was a significant result that we could notice our existence, which promoted the research of restructuring of the rehabilitation medicine in order to enable “Overcome the disabilities” for many-years to ISPRM on the other hand.
Elderly people will increase in number from now on. It becomes the first time for an age pyramid to reverse on a history of mankind. How should we provide for the elderly life? How should the elderly live with fulfilling life? The subjects in social security and the subject in the viewpoint of the self-actualization of a life have also accumulated. We are continuing research of the restructuring of the rehabilitation medicine in order for the elderly to live independently as long as they want. And our research is progressing to a new dimension as the 2nd subject stated at the beginning.
The first IBRC was held with the government of Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands together in 2002. My lecture title was "To Expect the Establishment of the New Civilization, Not to Make a Negative Factor to Increase Elderly in that Civilization” as a keynote address. This IBRC 2016, which Prof. Toshiyuki Tanaka of Keio University holds as a chairperson will be a convention which makes this title possible in the sense of truth.
I expect that IBRC 2016 will be a fruitful convention for all of the participants. Furthermore, I expect that it will be a big contribution for human beings. I would like to celebrate this holding from the bottom of my heart with you.
Thank you.
