Shaping the Future of Health and Healthcare
The global healthcare system today is beset by serious challenges: increased risk factors for health, unsustainable costs of care, lack of access to quality care, inadequate governance structures which exacerbate difficulties in responding to epidemics and regulatory frameworks that don’t keep up with technological advance and innovation. A strategic, long-term focus coupled with a collaborative mind-set across industries, policy-makers, civil society and innovators to keep populations healthy will be key to addressing the current challenges of the health ecosystem. As an Industry Partner, you will have access to this Initiative aiming to deliver healthy lives and health security for 9.7 billion people.
