The world is endowed with a vast wealth of human talent. Too often however, human potential is not realised. This gives rise to very significant social problems that need to be addressed. The Global Human Capital Report 2017 ranks 130
countries on how well they are developing their human capital on a scale from 0 (worst) to 100 (best).
Russias success in the future depends largely on the dynamics of human capital. Health and education are two main human capital issues. Leadership in the global economy will increasingly be determined by the countrys competitiveness in the global markets of educational and medical technologies and services. In this connection, in the industry whose orientation is limited primarily to the detection and treatment of diseases, healthcare should become an integrated interdisciplinary system that can not only more effectively solve medical and social problems, but also be one of the main drivers of the growth of the Russian economy.
