The world population is expected to grow to 8.5 billion people by 2030. This will be accompanied by the challenge of providing access to high-quality healthcare services for all. It is expected that chronic diseases such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes and obesity will continue to rise in the coming decades. At present, chronic diseases already account for 75% of our total global healthcare costs. These expenses are projected to continue to rise due to the growing and ageing population, leading to increased pressure on our healthcare systems.
