Session Concept
In aging society with declining birthrate, the current mindset: “I go to hospital, if I get sick.” clearly has no sustainability in the near future. Medical costs are soaring and it is getting more and more difficult for the younger generations to support the elder. Now, this situation poses impending socio-economic problems on developed countries; however, it will soon affect the entire world including Africa by 2050. We are urged to change our current mindset, by basing ourselves on an innovative vision shaping better future.
We should rethink our framework of thinking that illness is taken care of only in the medical domain; rather, we can consider the status of our body and mind as changing continuously from healthy to sick, not as a dichotomy between the two. Thus, the future mindset and vision should be “I take care of my own health.” This vision promotes participation and empowerment of individuals. To achieve this vision, we need to research and develop cutting-edge science and technology enabling transition “from hospitalization to outpatient care,” “from outpatient care to home care,” and “being healthy at home.” In addition, we need to facilitate social system innovation addressing inequality that hinders participation and empowerment of individuals.
Because no single player alone can solve these issues, this session invites diverse parties across disciplines, sectors, and countries to share and discuss their best practices tackling these issues. The final goal of this session is to make concrete proposals toward the better future framework of health/medical care.
