Health and wealth are concepts that are forever linked as having healthy populations plays a vitally important role in supporting economically active societies. In 2015, an international consensus led to the United Nations General Assembly adoption of 17 Sustainable Development Goals aimed at fostering peace and prosperity. Among these goals, one emphasizes the importance of ensuring health and well-being for individuals of all ages. 1 Despite such global initiatives, many jurisdictions and healthcare organizations face challenges related to:

  • Providing access to essential healthcare services and medicines
  • Ensuring the delivery of safe and quality care
  • Addressing long-standing equity issues that result in poorer health outcomes for those in underserved communities

Motivated by the rising call for social justice and public awareness, various governmental bodies, financial institutions, and healthcare organizations are actively seeking solutions to address issues related to health equity, access, and quality.
