In a vivid discussion led my Professor Denis Monard between young scientists and the audience, possible financing methods were discussed. In South Africa, there are plans to increase taxes for the rich in order to ensure health care. However, urban development at a higher level does not take place that could also include the aspects of health care and education. For the use of personalized medicine, a larger interest from doctors, patients and media is necessary. It is an area that has to be discussed in a broad and understandable way. There is no point in discussing personalized medicine only in scientific journals.
