As we move towards 2050, healthcare faces a series of challenges. Growing and ageing populations, the persistence of infectious diseases, the rise of chronic diseases and widening disparities in quality and access between rich and poor all present significant hazards. Evolution of the healthcare sector so that it can respond to these will be a fundamental part of whether we can create a world that provides a decent quality of life for all.
Our vision for a sustainable healthcare sector is one that ensures universal coverage to quality health services, and that is personalized, safer, smarter and more equitable.
Get the brief overview about the challenges, pathways for change and our vision for a safe and sustainable healthcare towards 2050 in the Healthcare section of our report A Safe and Sustainable Future – Enabling the transition. For a more elaborate deep dive we refer to our position paper Healthcare 2050.
