Denmark must do more to realize the benefits of innovative practices.
AmCham Denmark is convinced that Denmark has the means to build on areas necessary to create a world class healthcare system. But there is a long way to go. The most striking evidence is that Denmark has one of the lowest life expectancies among the OECD countries – 23rd position with 78.4 years, well behind neighboring Sweden, Finland, Norway and Germany. Though boasting one of the highest life expectancies in 1960, Denmark has fallen short of reaping the benefits that innovation has contributed to increasing life expectancy in other EU countries.
AmCham brings together international experience and perspective from both domestic and foreign healthcare companies and is strongly committed to making the Danish healthcare system a world class provider of treatments that ensure quality of care. What is needed is a reason for them to invest and grow jobs.
AmCham believes that improving the quality of healthcare and making Denmark an attractive environment for healthcare companies to invest in are fundamentally linked.
