- The Financial Times pointed to World Health Organisation estimates that there will be a global healthcare workforce gap of 14.5m by 2030. The factors that have contributed to the boom in social care include an ageing population, longer life expectancies, growth in the number of chronic health conditions and the Covid-19 pandemic. Some countries have started to implement programmes to encourage people to join the sector. According to McKinsey research, Singapore, for example, has created opportunities for 250,000 foreign domestic workers, with demand for care workers in the country set to increase by 300,000 by 2030.
