Hosted by the   Insurance & Healthcare Committee
Healthcare costs have grown 2% faster than GDP for 40 years , a trend which would lead most OECD countries to spend more than 20% of GDP by 2050. There is no general consensus on what factors are mainly responsible for this trend, nor on how significant a threat it represents to financial and fiscal sustainability.  
Emerging countries are also at risk of replicating this dynamic   as they design and build their health systems.
By adopting the same models, technologies and 'bad habits" of the developed world, these countries risk being confronted with ever-increasing costs.   If no action is taken, countries will be faced with intolerable public deficits   and be forced to make immediate decisions that will destroy long term value.  
World Economic Forum in collaboration with McKinsey set out to demonstrate that countries have an opportunity   now to develop a long-term vision for their healthcare system and make immediate investments to create long-term value and provide financial sustainability for the future.
