About Our Society

Dear friends,

Japan Association of Mesothelioma and Asbestos-Related Disease Victims and their Families was founded on the 7th February 2004.

This society is mainly managed by asbestos-related disease victims and their families all over the nation.

Asbestos-related diseases are : malignant pleural mesothelioma, malignant peritoneal mesothelioma, malignant pericardial mesothelioma, asbestos-related lung cancer, benign asbestos pleuritis and diffuse pleural thickening.

Our society aims, firstly, to make a community and network of victims and their families.

Secondly, we assist victims and their families to apply for worker's compensation from The Labor Ministry.

Thirdly, we lobby The Government to introduce an appropriate policy for victims and their families. Also, we work with the medical community and industry to achieve better treatment for sufferers.

Let's change our situation and create a non-asbestos world for the next generation !

Sincerely yours.
