Weaknesses in healthcare systems around the world leave countries exposed to crises and increase the economic, 疾病对社会和环境的影响. The 2022 PHSSR Global Summit convened experts to discuss the need to invest in health systems to ensure their resilience and sustainability for the long-term. 

Continuing to invest in health systems at a time of global economic uncertainty

尽管大流行最终会结束, its direct impact will affect population health for many years to come. On top of this, recent global events continue to demonstrate our shared vulnerability. 在这种背景下, it is more important than ever that we invest in the resilience and sustainability of our health systems. 他们在危机时刻保护im体育首页, and we need them to stand firm against the rising burden of chronic disease.

This urgency to ensure investment and prioritisation of healthcare was shared by global leaders and experts at the virtual 2022 Partnership for Health System 可持续性 and Resilience (PHSSR) Global Summit.

This was the second Global Summit for the PHSSR and an opportunity to collectively come together – academia, 非政府, 生命科学和医疗保健组织, and industry – to discuss the weaknesses in health systems that put populations at risk and leave countries exposed.

Healthcare systems around the world are grappling with the same problems, delivering services amid resource constraints and increased demand. 随着人口老龄化和不断增长, rises in non-communicable diseases and the impacts of climate change, there is one thing that remains certain – the need to continue investing in our health systems

全球峰会还看到了PHSSR 宣布主要趋势和建议 from independent research examining domestic healthcare systems in 13 countries* using a framework designed by London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) academics, 代表 合作的第二阶段.  

Major findings from this research highlighted five critical health system weaknesses – workforce and health service delivery, 卫生不公平现象, 财务和治理, 技术与环境可持续性.

特别值得注意的是, the research highlighted the imperative to address the rise of non-communicable diseases (NCDs) and climate change to strengthen health systems, with environmental sustainability being assessed within the PHSSR framework for the first time in this second wave of research.

Iskra Reic, Executive Vice-President for 疫苗和免疫疗法, AstraZeneca spoke at the Global Summit in a dedicated session on the need to invest in early intervention of NCDs to alleviate the health system burden.

成长中的人类, social and economic cost caused by communicable and non-communicable disease is unsustainable. 大流行只会进一步加重这一负担. That is why AstraZeneca and our public and private sector partners are using this major Summit to call for continued investment in health systems, 特别是针对非传染性疾病的早期干预

Climate change is the greatest health threat of the 21st century. Health systems have an important role to play in accelerating the delivery of net zero healthcare, and it is only by working in partnership across the sector and beyond that we can drive scalable change. 这种合作的一个例子是 联合行动 members of the Sustainable Markets Initiative Health Systems Task Force have made to address emissions across supply chains, 病人护理途径, 以及临床试验.

We founded the PHSSR shortly after the start of the COVID-19 pandemic with the World Economic Forum and the LSE. We were later joined by global-level partners that include Philips, 毕马威(KPMG), the Center for Asia-Pacific Resilience and Innovation (CAPRI) and the WHO Foundation. The PHSSR is now active in more than 30 countries and together we are committed to take action, and to collaborate across sectors and borders to build more resilient and more sustainable health systems for the future.
