THE FUTURE OF HEALTH AND WELLBEING PROGRAMME

Both in Singapore and in Europe, the healthcare sector faces increasingly complex challenges. These challenges call for a re-imagining of how healthcare services are delivered to the public and how incremental changes in lifestyle can improve health outcomes and overall wellbeing throughout the life-course. 

EuroCham has adopted a programme on "The Future of Healthcare and Wellbeing" and in 2020, we plan to execute a series of activities covering three main areas of focus: Healthcare & Innovation, Healthy Lifestyle & Wellbeing, and Healthy & Sustainable Food. 

Watch Healthcare Committee Chairman, Anbu Srinivasan (Managing Director of Fresenius Medical Care Singapore), explain the raison d’etre behind this new programme.
