Webinar: The Future of Healthcare: East vs West

Please join us on July 8, 2020, for this special webinar in partnership with Swiss Re Institute on The Future of Healthcare: East vs West.

About the Webinar

Never before have global healthcare systems across the world been under such scrutiny. Responses to the coronavirus outbreak have varied significantly – including testing, PPE procurement, treatment, reporting measures, tracking and tracing. With the healthcare industry at the centre of the crisis, what can we expect from its future? During this webinar, we will examine the impact of these differences and discuss how east and west can learn from each other.
