The country's S3 priorities in the area of health have a focus on healthy living and active ageing, and e-health. In Malta the life sciences sector has a wide ranging presence in the Maltese economy, with well established operations in the manufacture of pharmaceuticals and medical devices, the production of software for the healthcare industry, as well as a growing health tourism sector. All this has been boosted by the country’s workforce as well as effective connectivity with foreign markets.
