Health and well-being for all
The right to health and well-being is fundamental and means that everyone should have access to the healthcare services anywhere and anytime, regardless of origin, gender, or financial resources. Although we have advanced in many health areas, we still face the challenge of how to address various diseases and reduce preventable deaths worldwide.
The United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goal 3 aims to “ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages.” It addresses the primary health needs of the world’s population, including maternal and child health, the reduction of mortality from communicable and non-communicable diseases, access to safe and effective vaccines, and the prevention of tuberculosis and HIV.
The potential of AI in healthcare
Data and AI offer numerous opportunities to transform the delivery of health care profoundly and rapidly. The technology is essential in a range of health applications and is already being used to augment practitioners’ capabilities to detect and efficiently treat diseases. In addition, AI can assist patients in their healthcare journey – from real-time advising to scheduling appointments – and it can facilitate the allocation of resources and capacities within hospitals and healthcare facilities.
National health-focused AI strategies
From the US, to Korea and Australia, several countries have resorted to AI- and big data-driven tools to predict, manage, and combat the COVID-19 virus. At the same time, governments worldwide have started implementing health-focused initiatives in their respective AI strategies.
