Asia’s unprecedented growth brings strong development in emerging markets but also demographic and social challenges of various forms. In Asia’s more developed and urban economies like Japan, Korea, Singapore, Australia, New Zealand, and specific parts of Thailand and China, there are significant concerns of contending with health challenges that arise from an ageing population such as, deteriorating mental well-being, worsening diabetic and cardiovascular health and the implications these have for the healthcare and social welfare system. Governments are collaborating with private and civil society to bring innovative solutions to address these challenges, yet it is unclear if these efforts are successful in outpacing the challenges and their implications. This panel will explore the social investment and cross-sector collaboration experience in urban communities to address these challenges, gaining insights that can help with similar issues in other markets.
- Surface health challenges that need social investment attention in developed economies and urban environment
- Explore innovations from social investors to amplify impact in these health challenges.
- Highlight unique challenges and lessons learned in addressing health challenges in developed economies through impact investment and philanthropy
