Our health systems must put people at the centre

Looking back at what we have achieved over the past few decades in the health sector, in many ways the future is looking quite bright. People are living longer, healthier lives. Health data continues to grow exponentially. New health technologies, such as fitness trackers, wearables and remote monitoring systems, are breaking down the information walls of hospitals and clinics, empowering people to assess and monitor better their own health in real time. And new drug treatments tailored to the genetic profile of each individual–precision medicine–have the potential to revolutionise healthcare.

Journey to the Centre of the Earth in a Rubber Dinghy

Journey to the Centre of the Earth in a Rubber Dinghy

Deep beneath the earth’s surface, in mountain tunnels, Antarctic ice, and abandoned zinc and gold mines, physicists search for the elusive ‘ghost particle’ known as neutrino. Spat out of supernovas, colliding galaxies, and the Big Bang itself, about 100 trillion of these ghostly subatomic entities careen through our bodies at nearly the speed of light every second, going unnoticed because of their miniscule mass and neutral charge. To detect them at all, scientists the world over have had to build giant subterranean observatories which they must move around in by row boat. To the eye of a vintage sci-fi fan, these strangely beautiful facilities might look like they’ve come straight out of Barbarella or Flash Gordon
