With our international networks and relationships, we are uniquely positioned to be a key player in this emerging environment helping our partners to deliver and realizing our overarching goal of expanding access to modern health care.

Maturing regulatory environment

The increasing momentum in regulation is creating clarity in, and thereby helping to enable access to, new markets as governments in developing economies seek to fast track wider and more comprehensive access to healthcare for their populations

This includes more rapid approval processes for innovative medicines; technology assessment and approval, and more structured clinical guidelines. We are able to navigate these new opportunities, benefiting our partners and the community.

Expansion of healthcare coverage
Expansion of healthcare coverage

There is a growing commitment of governments around the globe to drive universal health coverage policies.

In parallel, growing demand for health insurance coverage continues to demand innovative funding models.

In turn this requires the expansion of the role of Public-Private Partnership models in healthcare to enable access, where we are ready and able to play an enabling role.
