Health care and services for an ageing population



The WP analyses the impact of population ageing combined with changes in household and family structure as well as changes in life style on the demand for health and long-term care services as well as goods and services for the elderly. Also changes on the supply side due to the socio-ecological transition are taken into account. Different from the existing studies, the WP is not focused on the fiscal sustainability, but on the effect on the employment size and structure.
