This new report focuses on five possible future scenarios for African healthcare systems over the next 10 years. Thirty-four leading healthcare experts – representing the entire chain of stakeholders across the sector – helped the Economist Intellegence Unit's analysts identify the key trends shaping African healthcare systems. These were then used to develop scenarios that depict the possible healthcare landscape on the African continent in 2022.
The report discusses the continent’s traditional healthcare issues, such as communicable diseases or financing healthcare in economically difficult circumstances. But it also addresses less well-known topics, such as the threat of obesity and heart disease, the use of mobile technology, development of more preventive care, and more.
