Population Ageing and Chronic Disease

People’s lives are the major focus of healthcare- people are born, they age and die. Indeed a major problem in developed countries is shifting the focus of healthcare from acute care of the young to chronic care of the aged. The demographic change of the twentieth century increased life expectancy and lowered the birth rate in many countries. When estimating the future demand for healthcare, many planning methods adjust the current service use by age and gender to future projections of age and gender distributions. Several of our recent modeling projects addressed anxiety about the impact of ageing on healthcare demand and the supply of workers and funding from taxes.
