> * Solving the Primary Health Care Malaise in Rural India
> While India is fast becoming a major world power (esp. in technology) and boasts 4 out of the top 10 richest people in the world, equitable primary health care is still a major issue, particularly in rural India. With a maternal mortality rate of over 300 (per 100,000) and infant mortality rate of 57 (per 1,000) India lags behind several developing countries such as Sri lanka, Thailand and Mexico. Traditional solutions, such as building more health centers, have a long lead time (10-15 years) and a poor track record (due to the unwillingness of skilled health workers to move to rural areas).
>
> What is being done to address this situation? Can technology solve primary health care malaise affecting the rural India? Stay tuned...
>
> Presenter Nagendra Bommadevara is an Engagement Manager based out of the New York Business Technology Office. He holds a Bachelors of Technology from IIT Bombay, a Masters of Philosophy from Yale University and an MBA from INSEAD, France. Prior to joining McKinsey, Nagendra worked as a consultant with Cap Gemini Ernst & Young. Within McKinsey, Nagendra is focused on the impact of technology on Health Care. He has advised pharmaceutical and bio-tech companies on various technology related issues. He is currently working on an engagement in India based out of Hyderabad, focused on solving rural health care issues through a technology enabled platform.

> **Future of the Pharmaceutical Industry
> The pharmaceutical industry has experienced unparalleled historic growth compared to other industries, with total industry size now larger than the GDP of Switzerland. A number of factors have contributed to this phenomenal growth, including an aging U.S. population, innovative breakthroughs, and the rise in demand for "lifestyle" drugs. However, the industry view is starting to divide, with continued high expectations for biotech companies but significantly lower growth expected for large pharmacos. Looking forward, challenges such as compliance issues and the impact of pharmacogenomics are balanced by opportunities for addressing operational inefficiencies and significant unmet medical needs (as exist in oncology). In this talk, we will give an overview of the present pharmaceutical industry and its future outlook, with some recommendations for how players can address these challenges and pursue opportunities.

Prior to joining McKinsey, she earned a Ph.D. in Biology from Stanford University.
> ***Costs of U.S. Healthcare
> The U.S. spends more of its income on healthcare than other developed countries, and that share is rising. In this presentation, the McKinsey Global Institute (MGI) finds that the U.S. spends about $480 billion ($1,600 per capita) more on healthcare than other OECD countries. Additional spending is not explained by a higher disease burden. Instead, MGI has found that the overriding cause of high U.S. healthcare costs is the failure of the intermediation system -- payers, employers, and government -- to provide sufficient incentives to patients and consumers to be value-conscious in their demand decisions, and to regulate the necessary incentives to promote rational use by providers and suppliers.
>
> Given the less-than-optimal access for all U.S. citizens (relative to peer countries), MGI concludes that major opportunities for cost improvement are as possible as they are necessary, though no single reform is likely to succeed in achieving the needed rebalancing. To be effective, we will argue in this presentation and discussion, reform in healthcare will need to apply sound principles on both the demand and supply side of the system.

> Presenter Bob Kocher is a Partner in McKinsey's Washington, D.C. office. Before joining McKinsey, Bob completed his medical training at George Washington University, and completed a residency in Internal Medicine at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. Bob serves both public and private sector clients on a wide range of issues related to hospital management and health system reform.
>
> ****Perspectives on Climate Change
> Consensus is growing that a concerted economy-wide effort is needed to address rising greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, but there are a lot of questions around how we should do so. Where and how can emissions reductions be best achieved? How much will it cost? How long will it take? On what principal actions should a comprehensive abatement program be built? McKinsey & Company has worked with leading companies, industry experts, academics, and environmental NGOs to develop a detailed, consistent fact base to answer these questions. In this discussion, McKinsey consultants will share some of our findings and perspectives on climate change.
