Ensuring sustainable and equitable access to healthcare

Perhaps more than any other industry, healthcare is indispensable to business resilience and the creation of a thriving, sustainable global economy.

Healthcare companies have an opportunity to reduce the burden of disease, improve global health outcomes, and create a more resilient and sustainable world by tackling a range of issues, including:

  • Access to healthcare
  • Health equity
  • Climate change and health
  • Antimicrobial resistance
  • Vaccine confidence
  • Global health security
  • Mental health and well-being in the workplace

We’ve worked with more than 60 leading healthcare companies and select nonprofit organizations—including pharmaceuticals and generics, biotechnology, life sciences, medical devices, healthcare delivery, insurance, distribution and retail, integrated managed care consortiums, and consumer health—helping them to advance norms, tools, and innovative solutions to create long-term value for business, patients, and society. 

50%

Half the world’s population still lacks access to essential healthcare services and medicines.

4.6%
