BATIMENTS DE SANTÉ

Hospital

Avec une population qui devrait doubler d’ici 2050, l’Afrique est confrontée à des défis majeurs. Son déficit en matière d’infrastructures de santé en est un. Saint-Gobain répond aux besoins actuels et futurs en matière de santé, aussi bien dans le secteur public que dans le privé.

According to the International Finance Corporation (IFC), a member of the World Bank Group, between 550 000 and 650 000 new hospital beds will need to be supplied in the next ten years across Africa. 

Associated demographic challenges influence the outlook in other ways too:

  • Africa has a relatively young population with a higher demand for quality (healthcare included).
  • There is a need for universal access to quality infrastructure and services.
  • Rapid urbanisation is increasing the pressure on the larger cities. 
  • Costs for the provision of basic healthcare services are rising.
  • The policy and regulatory landscape is changing.
  • Socio-economic factors play a big role.

Les défis liés à l’urbanisation et à la croissance de la démographie sont autant d’opportunités pour le développement et la création d’infrastructures de santé adaptées.
