How might healthcare change in the next 50 years?

New technologies and climate change are key factors that will affect the development of medicine in the near future.

Scientific studies show that the choice of a certain lifestyle and the potential development of the disease are interrelated. More and more people see the need for preventive medicine.

Development of medical tourism

In the coming years, the global medical tourism market will grow significantly. Many people travel abroad to get a “second opinion” of specialists and advanced medical technologies, which their country may lack.

In December 2020, Indian travel operators signed contracts to transport people abroad for coronavirus vaccination. This marked the beginning of vaccine tourism.

In advanced countries, there is an increase in the quality of medical services, patient involvement, improvement of vaccination procedures, innovations in medical gadgets in the field of cardiology, diabetes mellitus and neurology. We also see an individual approach to each patient and cost-effective treatment.

Climate change

Climate change affects the condition of patients. The number of respiratory and cardiovascular diseases and the risks of injury or premature death as a result of extreme weather events are increasing. There are changes in the spread of diseases, infections carried with food and water. This is also a threat to mental health.

At the same time, environmental pollution and global warming are motivating changes in the healthcare. In the near future we will see significant improvement in medicine. Climate and new medical technologies will have the greatest impact on this.
