After World War II, efforts became put in place to reconstruct the Japanese health infrastructure and public health system. The war had led to the breakdown of these systems. Housing, water plants, sewage system and equipment got destroyed extensively. Health resources became scarce and stretched. The atomic bomb also posed challenges through the unique physical and psychological effects it had created. Reconstruction of the healthcare system in Japan focused on modern, disease prevention and an awareness program. The awareness program got concerned with educating the public on hygiene and sanitation. Reforms got undertaken in medical education and reorganization of the hospital system (Niles, 2010). The diets of school children got introduced with powdered, skim milk. This method increased the protein and calcium intake improving the health of millions of school children. These reforms during reconstruction helped contribute to low infant mortality rates and growth in life expectancy among the Japanese population.
