With a growing and increasingly prosperous middle class, who are still not able to fully pay for long-term advanced therapy, it is time to rethink the traditional models of funding cutting-edge and high-cost pharmaceuticals and medical devices. Properly designed, innovative financing models may enable more patients to access new treatments without the fear of crippling financial consequences.

8 out of 10 industry stakeholders currently believe that transforming Asia healthcare requires a focus on Patient and Information Flow. At Galen Growth Asia, we believe this to be shortsighted.

HealthTech is in its nascent steps in Asian countries. The number of startups and corporate initiatives is growing fast, as is the widespread opinion that HealthTech represents an unprecedented opportunity to address key healthcare issues when it reaches scale.
