Health & Wellness

The U.S. faces some pressing challenges

A third of all school age children are either overweight or obese

Chronic disease now accounts for 75% of U.S. healthcare spend

A shortage of qualified physicians in the next decade

More than 20% of the population will be over-65 by 2040

How we are trying to tackle these problems

Across our funds, our Health & Wellness investments have been addressing challenges like these by building high-quality care homes for the elderly; by helping people with long-term conditions manage their health more effectively; by pioneering ‘hospital at home’ services to reduce the pressures on A&E departments; by using community pharmacies to improve health outcomes in underserved communities; by broadening access to affordable health and fitness facilities (see The Gym, right); and more.
