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

歷經疫情,台灣醫療體系的卓越表現及高度韌性獲得國際肯定。疫後生活應持續投資國民健康,但政府在健康照護的投資上仍遠遠落後,台灣醫療保健支出占國內生產毛額(GDP)遠差於亞洲鄰近國家及多數已開發國家,也反映在平均餘命、國人不健康之存活年數、嬰兒死亡率、十大癌症存活率、慢性病防治等指標的落後。

面對未來人口老化及各種公共衛生挑戰的衝擊,如何延長人民「健康的壽命」成為政府的新挑戰,要達成此目標,應從宏觀的角度將健康視為一種國力的投資,結合最新科技,從預防到疾病管理,明確設定國人健康指數提升目標,不論是在疫苗施打率、疾病篩檢率、癌症發生率、慢性病的過早死亡率甚或是精神健康疾病的復發率等,此論壇透過產官學研共同檢視健康指標及改進健康政策,才能打造永續的全民全齡健康,建構穩固的健康國力基礎。

 

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.
