AmCham Investing in Health Forum: 投資健康 鞏固國力 Investing in Health for a Stronger Nation
AmCham Public Health Committee Forum
Taiwan’s healthcare system has gained global recognition for its outstanding performance and resilience. As we move beyond the pandemic, it is imperative to continue investing in public health for a stronger nation. Currently, only slightly more than 6% of Taiwan’s GDP is allocated to healthcare, which is less than neighboring countries and most industrialized countries. This discrepancy is evident in various indicators such as our average life expectancy, disability-adjusted life year (DALY), infant mortality rate, survival rates of the ten most common cancers, and chronic disease control.
To address the future challenges posed by an aging population and various public health issues, extending the “healthy life expectancy” of our citizens is a new challenge for the government. The government should view health as an investment in the nation’s resilience. By harnessing the latest technology and focusing on disease prevention and management, clear objectives for improving health indicators should be set. These objectives could encompass vaccination rates, disease screening rates, cancer incidence rates, premature mortality from chronic diseases, and relapse rates for mental illness.
This forum, through collaborative efforts from the industry, government, and academia, hopes to refine health policies and encourage the governments’ investment in health to build a stronger and more sustainable future.
