Eurasia and its inner and outer emerging markets remain closely mutually interconnected via globalization strings. This shall remain the case, even through Covid, which has caused global economic downturn and crisis, fully unravelling in the early 2020s. Prior to the pandemic, there were severe difficulties funding existent social protection, pension, retirement, and labor market policies, which were inherited from the historical era of demographic growth across the world. This period effectively ended several decades ago, being replaced with the spread and acceleration of the global population ageing phenomenon. All of these bottlenecks of financial sustainability will be worsened by the world’s economic lock-down, triggered by the pandemic.
This Specialty Issue aims to gain profound knowledge on healthcare financing sustainability in the early years of the worldwide economic crisis of the 2020s. The main aim of healthcare structures is to protect and improve the health of a population. Ensuring this may put a heavy strain on resources. Therefore, when it comes to healthcare services, sustainability has to be taken into account as a main requirement and an important issue. We need to ensure the timely and cost-effective delivery of high-quality healthcare in the modern world, where fast changing and challenging circumstances and demands, mainly due to the increased web of globalization resulting from travel, and an increase in longevity are all are putting pressure on healthcare systems. With these assumptions in mind, we need to investigate sustainable high-quality healthcare, ensure ongoing research and development in this complex subject, while ensuring quality of service and cost-effectiveness, with the objective being to develop innovative systems, solutions, and strategies to realize sustainability, especially in the main macro-areas.
There is a clear need to build hospitals and healthcare stations that are able to cope with health as a complete well-being concept. Such complex realities can work only if every single part is healthy and care is taken to proactively act on prospective disrupters.
Regardless of current pandemic-related efforts, a broader perspective on healthcare funding sustainability shall supposedly be shaken during the years ahead in rich and poor nations alike. Eurasian and emerging markets acted as engines of global economic growth, before, during, and after the last worldwide recession of 2007–2017. Thus, these same nations will be the hotbed of change in the next wave of crises. Asia has leadership in many medical innovations and has cutting-edge E-Health technologies, with an increasing frequency of high-end patents. Given these facts, we plan to attract submissions overlapping the mentioned research questions in its broadest sense, without limitations on jurisdictions where submissions might come from.
