Sustainable Healthcare in APAC: Financing and Delivery Models

Sustainable Healthcare in APAC: Financing and Delivery Models


Event Information

Asia Pacific (APAC) is home to approximately 60% of the world’s population – its diverse make-up presents challenges to healthcare systems across the region, especially at a pivotal time when patients are increasingly demanding more personalised care. In addition, there are existing challenges that will continue to place a burden on healthcare systems such as ageing populations, rise in non-communicable diseases, and the need to create greater access to healthcare.

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has also emphasised the need for a more resilient health system to respond to future shocks and ensure sustainability. It has become more pressing than ever for economies to improve efficiency in healthcare, optimise resources and maximise patient outcomes.

In response, KPMG in Singapore and Sanofi, with the support of the World Economic Forum, have undertaken insight gathering activities across APAC on the topic of sustainable healthcare delivery and financing in the region with new insights and recommendations to inform the path forward.

Gaining insights from policymakers, healthcare practitioners, patients, financing, academia and the healthcare industry, among other key constituents, the report puts forward a new ‘Universal Health Coverage 2.0’ model to ensure that healthcare delivery and financing in APAC sustain themselves, and also provide recommendations for three major challenges – life-course immunisation, diabetes management and rare diseases.
