Chronic Diseases

Chronic Diseases
  • Pininvest Analysis

The chronic diseases to which our theme pays special attention are diabetes, kidney-failure, hypertension and respiratory disorders

Most – if not all these life threatening conditions – are related to changing life styles and consumption patterns, both in developed and developing countries, becoming a stark challenge for health care organizations and governments worldwide

The health care firms providing medication – and medical devices - for these chronic diseases have developed a business model setting the companies apart from the pharmaceutical majors in a long term strategy

  • Gaining traction in developing countries, one market at a time, the most successful firms have learned how to fit in – always very distinct – local healthcare organizations and to account for insurance coverage systems  (where they exist)
  • Education of healthcare professionals by the industry leaders has gone beyond marketing efforts – especially in emerging markets
