Indonesia's new goal to establish universal healthcare coverage by 2019 rather than 2014 is more feasible given that the programme will be rolled out in phases. We continue to see universal healthcare coverage as a key theme in Asia, although poor governance in several countries across the region will delayitsimplementation. Despite this, pharmaceutical firms will continue to enjoy strong growth in the region due to the expanding, increasingly ageing and affluent population, which will boost volume demand for pharmaceuticals as well as medical services across the board.
