IFC Global Private Health Conference 2015

 

Demand for healthcare is growing rapidly in developing countries. Rising middle classes and lengthening life expectancy is driving the demand for health services.  Spending on health care is increasing, particularly in relation to non-communicable diseases.

Many low- and middle-income countries struggle to provide basic care via public health systems, while increasingly called upon to address diseases of an aging population like heart disease, cancer, and diabetes. Many poorer families turn to the private sector for quality care, but paying for it can be a burden.

Overcoming these challenges will require the investment, the expertise, and the innovation of the private sector.

The sixth IFC Global Private Health Conference brought together over 350 health industry leaders active in emerging markets to share knowledge, examine what’s working and to discuss the obstacles to bringing better service to more people.
