The December edition of Healthcare Global is live.

This month, we spoke with Dr Harald Nusser, Head of Novartis Social Business (NSB) regarding the organisation’s non-financial collaboration with the Global Antibiotic Research & Development Partnership (GARDP), to develop a dispersible tablet formulation of the most impactful antibiotics currently in the pipeline. With a mission to cure, discover, develop and successfully market innovative products to prevent and cure diseases, NSB has combined its social and business aspirations to drive both profit and purpose.

However, throughout the industry’s efforts to promote engagement and develop essential treatments on a global scale, it is vital that citizens are able to access essential treatment at affordable prices. As healthcare costs continue to escalate, we spoke with Mitesh Patel, Medical Director at Aetna International, regarding the company’s development of world-class health management solutions for governments, corporations and providers worldwide, providing health benefits to more than 800,000 members worldwide.

Consumers are increasingly wanting affordable treatment which is accessible, anytime, anywhere. Technology is playing a key role in fully disrupting traditional models of care, leading us to take an extensive look at the top 10 medical innovations which will gain further traction in 2019, as well as showcase essential healthcare events across the upcoming year.
