INTRODUCTION TO THE FIRST FRANCE-INDIA HEALTHCARE SUMMIT
At a first glance, India and France Healthcare sectors look very far apart. Demographics are hugely different- 1300 million people in India, 50% less 25 years old and a life expectancy of 68 – versus 67 million in France, 19% being more than 65 years old and a life expectancy of 82. France spends 11,75% of its GDP on Healthcare versus 4,7% for India. There are 300 citizens for one doctor in France versus 1500 in India. India’s Healthcare sector is already worth 100 B$, that is about 70$ per person versus 290 B$ in France or 5000$/person. India’s Healthcare has huge challenges ahead – acces, mass treatment, cost, insurance etc. – but is poised to grow at 17% per year in the years to come. France’s healthcare sector is seen as one of the best in the world, but is mature and faces serious challenges as well – silver economy, National Social Security costs and future balance, acces to health in tier II cities and rural areas.
Beyond the startling differences, there are probably at least three converging imperatives for both sectors:
The purpose of this first France-India Summit is to explore these challenges and look at the opportunities: learning from each other, exploring shared initiatives, possible partnerships and commercial, research opportunities. And also look at the resources needed – talent, funding – to make these opportunities happen.
