In fact, some estimates go as high as 1.5 million. As science and technology continues to advance, so research continues to be conducted in this field leading to extensive progress within the development of various medical technologies. Included in these are genetic testing, genetic manipulations and remote patient management. Despite this progress, most of the world’s population continues to have little or no access to much of these advances, often due to a lack of a suitable regulatory framework.
