Good health sits at the heart of our societies, and the systems that make up our healthcare services are essential to creating a sustainable future for us all. However, these systems have been under previously unimaginable levels of stress during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Experts are warning of a "tsunami of mental health issues" hitting our societies as we try to navigate the pandemic and daily healthcare has been put aside to enable the much needed emergency response capability. How can the system adapt to be more sustainable in the future, more integrated into society, more holistic? These are some to the challenges to be explored by the Healthcare cluster.
The Healthcare cluster is forming and early discussions are taking place, with the aim of launching in H1 2021.
