Abstract

SUSTAINABLE HEALTHCARE SYSTEMS: AN INTERNATIONAL STUDY 5 The funding and configuration of sustainable healthcare continues to attract controversy around the world. In many countries the operation of the healthcare system is an important political issue and any proposed changes to meet emerging challenges are often fiercely resisted and can prove difficult to implement. This report highlights the importance of the issue and reveals how well the existing healthcare systems in 11 countries (Australia, Abu Dhabi, Canada, England, France, Germany, Ghana, India, Malawi, New Zealand, United States) are coping with the challenges of today and tomorrow. Although healthcare systems vary enormously between countries in the way they are configured and financed, the research highlighted that most face similar challenges, such as changing demographics, especially ageing, together with high levels of preventable illness. The changing medical, demographic, technological and economic conditions are creating additional demands on healthcare services at a time when the public are seeking further improvements in both the quality of services provided and scope of treatments available.
