The World Health Organization estimates the world population to be 9 billion people by 2050, and for the first time in history, life expectancy will be more than 60 years old for half of them.
Therefore, the health needs will be enormous and several European countries have already implemented an integrated offer including healthcare services and products. In this competitive environment, France has many assets we need to strengthen abroad. Our expertise is not only based on national research centers – renowned for their innovation capacity, competitiveness centers and universities, world leaders in healthcare research, but also on the pharmaceutical industry which helps improve our trade balance with its export success (26 billion Euros in 2016).
In order to meet our worldwide requirements in healthcare, we need to introduce a coordinated offer. This is the reason why the Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Development launched “French Healthcare” on March 16, 2017.
First introduced as a brand, French Healthcare is now an organization created as an animation tool of the healthcare providers and a collective marketing tool of the French expertise.
The “French Healthcare” approach intends to promote the French vision in terms of worldwide health, based on a humanist approach of healthcare and a right and fair access to healthcare products and services.
Promoting the French expertise in healthcare, in its broadest sense, is how “French Healthcare” conveys the French excellence in healthcare.
