Investing in Health: Effective Cooperation between Business and Society

18 Jun , 08:30–10:30
Business Breakfast

A country’s economy is directly dependent on the condition of the healthcare system and the ability to follow strategies to achieve national goals, to remain steadily resilient to any challenges, and to provide the country with a capable workforce. However, effective healthcare is a long-term investment in economic development if it does not impose an economic burden on the country’s GDP and is aimed at preserving the health of the nation. Strategies for building a healthy society are based on the principles of constructive cooperation between the state, socially oriented business, and the society itself, which shares health’s values as a measure that prevents the development of socially significant diseases. How can we achieve a balance between the interests of the state and business for the development of quality healthcare, so that it would be beneficial to the economy and society? How can the resources of the business community be attracted to the development of national patient-centered healthcare and create a comfortable environment for the development of public-private partnerships in healthcare? What decisions can have a positive impact on the development of socially responsible business in the country? What state strategies should contribute to the creation of a society that shares health’s values within a country?
