About Innovating Care Asia Pacific

There is a pressing need to define the full care continuum and build an ecosystem approach. Addressing this huge challenge – and opportunity – requires innovation and a coordinated effort across stakeholders.

Asia is the fastest-growing and most dynamic region in the world. Over the last several decades, medical technology advancements have steadily improved the standard of care for patients in many areas of the world. At the same time, a huge disparity in access to high quality, cost-effective healthcare continues to exist for millions of people. The need in some Asian countries are particularly acute, especially with the rapid growth of the ageing population. According to reports, Asia's elderly population is projected to soar from 300 million to 922.7 million by 2050, leading to a shortage of manpower in the healthcare industry.

In light of this, Innovation must address significant barriers, including the lack of patient awareness, infrastructure and training for healthcare professionals. There is a pressing need to define the full care continuum and build an ecosystem approach. Addressing this huge challenge – and opportunity – requires a coordinated effort across multiple stakeholders to deliver innovation to improve outcomes, expand access and increase affordability of healthcare in Asia Pacific.

By forming a community of like-minded healthcare stakeholders, each holding considerable influence and decision-making power in their respective sectors, we aim to transform healthcare and care delivery in order to respond quickly to the needs of the future.
