"Support Act on Children with Medical Care and Their Families" Passed and will Promote Inclusive Education

     On June 11, the Diet adopted the "Support Act on Children with Medical Care and Their Families". It will enact at this September. The Support Act stipulates that local government should post medical staff to nursery, kindergarten, and schools if the children need medical care. Each prefecture should set up Support Center where children who need medical care and their families can consult daily problems. This Act is to diminish the burden for families who have children with medical care and prevent parents from losing their jobs. In Japan,  it's said that 20,000 children need medical care.
