Future of Healthcare Week Asia: Building Sustainable Systems for the Future

The covid-19 pandemic has tested every country’s healthcare system, shining a light on the weaknesses in many and demonstrating areas of excellence in others. This coming November, during The Economist’s Future of Healthcare Week Asia, they will bring together healthcare leaders from across the Asia-Pacific region to take stock of lessons learnt and discuss what needs to be done to strengthen healthcare systems for the future.

Over the course of the week, policymakers, healthcare providers, academics and scientists will come together with representatives from industry, associations, charities and the finance sector to consider the issues that need to be overcome, and measures that need to be put in place, to build resilient healthcare systems that will withstand the test of time. Discussions will address matters including the long-term implications of covid-19, the digitisation of healthcare, vaccine development, data collection and interoperability, precision medicine, cancer care, antimicrobial resistance, healthy ageing, chronic diseases and new technologies.
