Barriers to Shifting from Treatment to Prevention

One element of our vision for health in 2040 is that there has been a shift in focus from sick care to preventative medicine.

What are the barriers to getting us there?

@yuanluo, it would be great to get your input on this! I believe you’re the top preventative medicine expert in our Community.

@nylapirani and @Elena_Milova, your expertise in the root causes of aging could also be relevant to this discussion. Please feel free to weigh in!

Once we understand the barriers, we can ideate breakthroughs and eventually prize ideas in the next phases of Global Visioneering.

Hi @darlenedamm and @TinaWoods - We would love to hear your thoughts on the barriers faced when shifting focus from sick care to preventive care?

This is a system change issue- policymakers, scientists, business leaders, public sector and the general public need to align around different govt priorities, funding, business models and attitudes. Most of the barriers are cultural - with organisations not wanting to change the status quo!
