With an increasingly obese and aging population, chronic degenerative diseases are becoming a growing concern for all players in the Mexican healthcare sector, from public institutions to researchers. Patients themselves will have to bear the greatest burden of these diseases, with consequences that range from diminished life quality to premature death. Yet, many of these diseases can be prevented, managed or their worst consequences avoided if detected on time.

Antimicrobial resistance is a growing problem worldwide that is costing lives and complicating efforts to control or eliminate several diseases, including tuberculosis and malaria. Addressing antimicrobial resistance will require a joint effort among doctors, patients, agronomists, policymakers and many other stakeholders. In this multifrontal fight, the role drug manufacturers play cannot be underestimated. This presentation looks at how the pharmaceutical industry is joining the fight against antimicrobial resistance.
- SpeakerYiannis MallisGeneral Manager and Vice President of Novo Nordisk Mexico
Seven out of 10 Mexicans are overweight or obese, despite nationwide government campaigns to get the population moving. The consequences of these conditions pose a severe burden on individuals, who might find themselves more susceptible to illnesses like cancer, diabetes and cardiovascular disease. This in turn puts considerable pressure on the healthcare system; if unchecked, these medical conditions will increase the costs of healthcare to untenable levels. Prevention is the agreed strategy to tackle both institutional and individual healthcare problems.
