Financing the future of healthcare

1 Feb 2023

To meet the needs of patients, we must reimagine health system financing models. The social health insurance model, which relies on employment-based contributions, is not sustainable during times of economic downturn, rising unemployment and ageing populations. Falling back on out-of-pocket payments only stands to worsen the health outcomes of the most vulnerable. While no single model will solve all the problems, governments should lean toward providing universal access to healthcare to broaden healthcare accessibility and reduce the burden on patients.
