ASEAN healthcare gets the first sub-paper on sustainable financing

KPMG, SANOFI, and EU-ASEAN business council joined hands to launch the first sub-paper on sustainable financing for healthcare in ASEAN. The launch is a part of the “Driving Comprehensive healthcare in ASEAN” initiative and was attended by eminent leaders and speakers from the Healthcare and Finance industry.

Considering the aging population, the advent of both communicable and non-communicable diseases and the commitment to achieve UHC by 2030, expenditures are poised to rise further. Representing nine European Chambers of Commerce in Southeast Asia, and a multi-sectoral consortium of European Businesses, the EU-ASEAN Business Council focuses primarily on being a Healthcare Advocacy Group. Chris Humphrey, Executive Director had stressed the increasing importance of the topic, not just for those working in the healthcare sector, but for all citizens across ASEAN. KPMG’s research suggests that countries can achieve the same level of life expectancy at 30 percent of current healthcare expenditures. The move aims to turn healthcare costs into smart investments that become an economic driver of the countries.

Thirty expert interviews, insights with background research, and collaborative data points are the key contents of the exclusive sub-paper. A sustainable wireframe for ASEAN’s healthcare ecosystem must be adopted and integrated as part of the financial planning and costs for the future.
