The global population is ageing rapidly. By 2040, the worldwide population aged 60+ is expected to more than double, reaching almost 2 billion people. An ageing population has consequences for the types of services and care that people need.
Our Ageing Population theme invests in companies that are addressing the growing needs of the world’s ageing demographic. There are a range of companies within the theme, from healthcare companies focusing on diseases such as Alzheimer’s, to real estate companies focusing on housing for the elderly.
- 5 Billion People Lack Access to Surgery
The impact of surgical intervention is unlike any other health intervention. Surgery can cure 1/3 of all human illness and disease and can almost immediately change a person’s life.
In chronically underfunded health systems, surgical care is ignored and widely inaccessible to the poor. Local facilities lack appropriate supplies and equipment. Medical professionals do not have training in the latest techniques. Few can afford the high cost of surgery.
Patients often arrive at our centre desperate for a solution. They have tried every avenue imaginable, but surgical care is dauntingly unavailable in their country. The impact of our work is immediately apparent when patients leave our facility—not only physically healed but with a renewed sense of hope for the future.
