By 2050, the world’s population will have risen to 9.7 billion, with 2 billion over the age of 60. The world is ill-equipped to respond to this. The global health system will have to undergo major transformation to ensure the environment where people live fosters healthier and longer lives as well as health security across borders.
The Global Challenge on Health provides expertise, networks, and unique opportunities for public and private sector collaborations towards delivering on the health needs for 9.7 billion people.
