Live a longer, healthier, and happier life in Hong Kong

How Bupa and Quality HealthCare, the connected healthcare provider in Hong Kong, are helping people to live their best lives, as well as leaving a positive impact on the planet.

Hong Kong’s population has more than doubled to over 7.1 million since the 1960s, and according to government projections, the number is expected to continue increasing to eight million by 2041. 

If not planned and managed well, this increase in population and continued urban development can result in unsafe levels of air pollution, congestion, increased climate and natural disaster risk, and subsequently, a reduced quality of life.  

To help alleviate the negative impacts of urbanisation on people’s health and the environment, Bupa and Quality HealthCare have rolled out a ‘Healthy Cities’ programme, supporting the health of individuals and communities via healthy lifestyle programmes. 

It reflects the company’s purpose which is helping people “live longer, healthier, happier lives, and making a better world”.

Bupa and Quality HealthCare’s Connected Care strategy encompasses insurance protection, health services, digital access, and physical clinics through an integrated healthcare experience in Hong Kong. They also recognise the role that mental health plays in sustaining overall health. That’s why the organisation adopts a holistic approach when it comes to taking care of customers’ overall health and wellbeing, working with various NGO partners to offer engaging and accessible mental health programmes.

Last year, Bupa launched the  ‘Be Brave Now’ campaign, designed to start important conversations and, share experiences and difficult emotions, as well as stories of mental health for individuals facing these challenges. Aimed at breaking the stigma around mental health, the campaign also helped create connections to help build a stronger, healthier community for everyone.

As part of Bupa’s and Quality HealthCare’s commitment to promoting sustainable practices in Hong Kong, the organisation signed a five-year strategic partnership with environmental charity The Green Earth, which will encompass a range of projects, including enhancing the biodiversity in the countryside by replacing 1,000 sick and ageing trees with local species on 10,000 sqm of land at the country park. 

To help people better understand the connection between nature and our health, Bupa and The Green Earth also co-developed a zero-carbon lifestyle e-book, curated to embolden the community to contribute and make significant changes to the environment. 

Other notable initiatives that the healthcare provider Quality HealthCare has implemented include reducing plastics at their clinics and reimagining the way they deliver more efficient, lower-carbon healthcare through apps, technology and other innovations.
