Healthcare is the Sustainable Development Goal-3 of the United Nations. Therefore, healthcare is a principal sector for ICREA, through which it focuses on providing and increasing affordable healthcare infrastructure in developing countries.
The landscape of the healthcare sector is steadily evolving. It is unique in its dynamics, population, growing-returning diaspora, genetics, government spending, policies & framework, trained workforce availability, patient-doctor ratio, and public sector facilities.
The growth drivers in the healthcare sector are the rising population, growing penetration levels of primary, secondary, and tertiary healthcare facilities, increased insurance requirements, expanded government spending and initiatives, evolving regulatory and market framework, and expansionary trends like digital healthcare solutions, telemedicine, and AI. The impact of medical tourism on the healthcare sector is substantial as well. For example, only Nigerians spend USD 1 billion annually on medical tourism.

In this sector, there are wide gaps across countries due to the unavailability of healthcare and its infrastructure. There is a dire need for huge investments, greater participation of the private sector, extensive specialties, powerful joint ventures, alliances, and partnerships.
Healthcare is driven heavily by public hospitals in Africa, whereas India has a blend of highly developed private and public healthcare.
Europe is mainly public-sector foccused.
The Middle East has a mixture of public and private institutions
In most emerging countries, there is an urgent necessity for the participation of the private sector in healthcare.
