7 Ways GE Is Contributing To Indonesia’s Healthcare Industry

With the fourth largest population in the world and a growing economy with a rising middle class, Indonesia presents one of the fastest growing healthcare systems in the world. With the implementation of ‘Badan Penyelenggara Jaminan Sosial’ (BPJS) scheme initiated in 2014, the market anticipates a high requirement of hospital beds, medical devices, affordable and low-cost medicines and talent to meet the growing demand for healthcare locally.
