The Healthcare and Life Sciences Growth Trajectory Beyond BRICS
While low and middle income group countries are typically characterized by a high burden of communicable diseases, the trend appears to be changing. By 2030, NCDs are expected to account for nearly 55% of the disease burden of these country groups. A growing middle aged population increases the risk of NCDs in the low and middle income country groups, especially Asia, Africa, and parts of Latin America. Growth in burden of NCDs - diabetes and cardiovascular diseases - not only calls for greater healthcare infrastructure and a larger healthcare workforce but also adequate preventive care. The initiatives of the government to develop eHealth in some countries open up avenues for investment in areas, such as tele-medicine, healthcare platforms and application software, and electronic health records.
