Financing and delivering care in the age of longevity

Financing and delivering care in the age of longevity

Supported by Healthcare Committee

Hong Kong has one of the fastest growing elderly populations globally; by 2040 one in four of the population will be 65 or over compared with just one in eight today. This situation will have repercussions for almost all aspects of society, including the economy and the demands on public services.

The Healthcare Committee recently launched a survey to explore the business communities’ views on the provision and financing of elderly care; now and into the future.

At this lunch seminar, they will share the results of the survey and discuss the implications for business leaders, policymakers and service providers.
