How can the Global Health and Healthcare industry collaborate with the public sector and civil society to deliver affordable and quality healthcare for nearly 9.7 billion people by 2050?This community is a high-level group of industry leaders dedicated to ensuring the long-term sustainability of their industry and society. Industry AgendaThe Global Health and Healthcare Governors define the industry agenda. The group, comprising chief executives and chairs from partner organizations, closely align the agenda with the System Initiative on Shaping the Future of Health and Healthcare.The Governors identified three priority challenges for 2017: Accelerating value-based healthcare, contributing to universal health coverage, and advancing precision medicine. The Forum is addressing these challenges through a number of projects and activities:1.    Accelerating value-based healthcareThe Value in Healthcare project aims to stimulate healthcare reform by identifying how to deliver health outcomes that matter to patients. It does this by:

  • Identifying the key enablers needed to support a value-based healthcare (VBHC) system. This will be achieved by defining a standardized taxonomy and conducting deep-dives and compiling case studies on VBHC implementation 

  • Running pilots to identify barriers and solutions for adopting a VBHC approach for priority therapeutic areas and population segments

  • Understanding and resolving clinical, policy and regulatory challenges that must be overcome to achieve global VBHC adoption

2.    Contributing to universal health coverageThe Primary Care Coalition project aims to improve access to healthcare by forming a coalition to develop a sustainable, affordable and proven model for primary healthcare capacity development. This model will be scalable and replicable in any context. The areas of focus include:

  • Establishing political will to address sustainable access to primary care

  • Creating an operating model for the Primary Care Coalition

  • Identifying the leadership and next steps needed to launch and run the Primary Care Coalition

3.    Advancing precision medicineThe Precision Medicine project aims to shape how emerging technologies enable more targeted and customized approaches to health and healthcare to benefit society while minimizing the risks. The areas of focus include:

  • Developing in-depth understanding of the regulatory landscape and building agile regulatory frameworks to accelerate the integration of precision medicine into healthcare 

  • Generating ideas and recommendations for how to establish precision medicine as the driver of health and healthcare systems
