Geopolitical events can often have profound impacts on local, regional, and even global healthcare markets. Many major healthcare providers, payors, and health technology (healthIT) firms operate across many global regions instead of remaining local. As such, political, social, and geographic events can place unexpected strain on players in the healthcare space. This report examines some of the most prominent geopolitical events unfolding in the world today and discusses their potential impact across the healthcare sectors of providers, payors, and health technology firms. The three major events this report focuses on are Brexit, COVID-19, and climate change.

The UK underwent a referendum in 2016 to leave the European Union, triggering a period of political turmoil. The UK has now officially exited the EU, but policy surrounding political relations, trade deals, and regulatory matters remains uncertain.

A novel coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2, has spread globally. The rapid spread of the virus has resulted in various degrees of lockdown around the world and has resulted in healthcare pressures in many countries.

Climate change impacts healthcare in many ways, including increased extreme weather events, forced migration, increased flooding, and food insecurity. In order to remain competitive, providers, payors, and health technology companies must develop sustainable practices in order to cope with and mitigate the effects of climate change on population health.
