The World Health Organization (WHO) recently updated their list of some of the most urgent health challenges for the upcoming decade that suggest invested coordination from global health sectors and policymakers to address them. We look into these trends to understand how our current global health system depends on coordinated medical aid and advancements to focus on big picture changes, such as making healthcare equitable and earning public trust in our health systems.
Expanding access to medicine will expand support in places where medicine is not readily available. It’s important to address how this lack of access affects much of the global population, and to continue developing means of providing access for those who need it most.
Our goal is to dive into the root of the problem. For many, this means addressing the systemic issues that act as barriers to health access as well as other larger societal challenges including education, lack of infrastructure, and limited resources in specific places in the world. One way to address these kinds of problems is to build the groundwork for companies to provide more affordable solutions and treatments to increase accessibility. By providing access to benefit patients, it reduces the burden for their caregivers and enables a more supportive system for people to seek help and better qualities of life.
Addressing health inequalities is the first step to improving global health for everyone
Rates of disease spread more easily in low and middle-income communities & populations, where they have less resources to allocate to healthcare. Preventing infectious diseases sufficiently requires funding and reliable healthcare systems. By developing the programs and resources to do so, we as a society can prevent potentially disastrous outbreaks, and help more in need.
We live in a time where digitised health and information is at our fingertips. Seragon’s agenda includes optimising these technologies to benefit our patients and our growth, serving more people and investing in the right resources that will transform the nature of healthcare to last for future generations.
Investing in health care workers
Health care must be sustainable with passionate workers who are able to deliver quality care where it is needed. The healthcare system depends on properly trained workers who defend our health at all levels. It’s with this foundation that we can deliver safe, reliable health care to our patients who trust in us to provide efficient and safe medicines that enrich our quality of life.
