HEALTH

While in general health conditions have improved, providing fair global levels of health is a constant pursuit of humankind. Cost is often a major barrier to more inclusive implementation: solutions will be implemented widely if they are affordable. Aging and mass urbanization present new health challenges. Chemistry plays an indispensable role in improving global health standards and contributes to tackling the impact and consequences of illnesses by refining medical materials and treatments.

The scope of the Health theme at the World Chemical Summit is the ways in which the chemical industry can provide solutions and should develop to help to:

Enhance diagnostics

Understand and prevent illnesses

Improve material innovation in healthcare
(pharmaceuticals and prosthetics)

Inspirational Talk

"How chemistry can help improve the world's health"
