The Society was established (under the name TEIKOKU GAKKO EISEIKAI) to support the improvement of school health and the advancement of school health administration.
The Minister of Education approved the Society’s conversion to incorporated foundation status. The Society subsequently continued to contribute to the enhancement of school health in the pre-war era.
The Society merged with the Incorporated Foundation Japan Federation of School Dentist Associations, and was re-established as the NIPPON GAKKO EISEIKAI.
The Society’s name was changed to Incorporated Foundation Japan Society of School Health to reflect the increasingly wide range of organizations and individuals involved in school health related matters. The Society subsequently continued to implement a wide range of activities in support of school health.
Following the introduction of the new public interest foundation system, the Society secured approval to restructure itself as the Public Interest Incorporated Foundation Japan Society of School Health, since when it has continued its operations until the present time.
