With a population approaching 80 million, Turkey’s energy consumption based on primary energy resources is continuously increasing. More than 75% of energy consumption in the country is met by imports. This creates a huge burden on the economy. Therefore, it is critical for Turkey to meet the country’s energy demand by using domestic non-renewable and renewable resources, which is a central part of government policy.
Turkey’s healthcare sector has grown in line with an increase in purchasing power parity, which is a result of positive economic developments in the country in the past decade.
The average age increased from 28 in 2007 to 31 in 2015, indicating that the population is starting to age and that healthcare spending will increase as a result. Nevertheless, half the population are still younger than 35 years of age, which is a positive parameter in terms of healthcare sector funding.
