About the AIA Healthy Living Index
The 2018 AIA Healthy Living Index is the fourth Asia-Pacific wide survey on health and wellbeing AIA has conducted since 2011.
The survey findings highlight prevailing health trends and indicate areas in which individuals and communities can move towards sustaining more healthy lifestyles.
The Asia-Pacific region is experiencing rapid growth in demand for quality healthcare that outstrips the development of resources and infrastructure. This phenomenon is creating significant opportunities for innovative technology and healthcare funding solutions to improve the quality and availability of care across the region.
For the 2018 Index we carried out surveys among 11,000 adults in 16 of our markets — Australia, Cambodia, mainland China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Korea, Macau, Malaysia, New Zealand, the Philippines, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam.
In addition to producing the AIA Healthy Living Index itself, which measures consumers’ satisfaction with their health and wellness behaviours, the 2018 Survey had several additional objectives. In each market, we wanted to find out:
- How the issue of financing healthy activities and medical treatment affects people’s ability to live healthily;
- What motivates people to adopt healthy behaviours, what factors make it hard for them to sustain them, and how they can make sustainable changes to adopt a more healthy lifestyle;
- What role technology is playing in people’ attempts to adopt healthier habits.
