Shaping the Future of Health and Healthcare

How can the world deliver healthy lives and healthcare for 9.7 billion people by 2050?

By 2050, the world’s population is expected to rise to 9.7 billion, with 2 billion over the age of 60. However, the global health and healthcare system is still ill-equipped to deal with this demographic transformation. To keep populations healthy and to treat patients more effectively, solutions need to come from outside traditional healthcare.

The World Economic Forum’s System Initiative on Shaping the Future of Health and Healthcare provides a unifying framework for health preservation and improved healthcare delivery. The effort brings together stakeholders from the public and private sectors to catalyse opportunities to accelerate these goals.
