PREVENTION & EARLY DIAGNOSIS: BARRIERS TO CANCER
  1. Speaker
    Juana Ramírez
    CEO and Founder of SOHIN

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.

The costs of poor health go beyond the individual. It is well-understood that a sick population impacts a country’s healthcare system and its budget. But less discussed is how sick individuals impact productivity in companies and how an unhealthy population affects a country’s economic future.

PHARMACEUTICALS AND THE FIGHT AGAINST ANTIMICROBIAL RESISTANCE
  1. Speaker
    Alba Tiley
    Head of the Sustainable Antibiotics Division of DSM Sinochem Pharmaceuticals

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.

OBESITY AND DIABETES: EDUCATION THE KEY TO PREVENTION?
  1. Speaker
    Yiannis Mallis
    General 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.
