ASIA HEALTH SUMMIT 2015: Next Generation Preventive Health

Without immediate and drastic change, Filipinos face an epidemic of misery and early death from so-called Lifestyle Diseases. International studies conclusively state that 60% of deaths are now caused by ailments such as heart disease, stroke and diabetes – a colossal increase from just a generation ago.

Rates of such diseases in emerging countries across the world are on track to dramatically over-shoot those of the most unhealthy countries of the west. Philippines is thought by many to be leading the way in Asia because of a fast growing middle-class and strong western cultural influences.

The World Health Organization believes Philippines faces a “double burden” because it is still fighting malnutrition and high rates of infectious diseases. The “new pandemic” of Lifestyle Diseases will overwhelm health services of the nation unless rates of increase can be stopped – but, if anything, they continue to increase.


The cost to families, businesses and the country as a whole will be very high indeed. How can we work together to ensure a healthy future for Filipinos?
