Developing long-term care systems for older people

The training course “Developing long-term care systems for older people” was developed in collaboration with ADB Asian Development Bank (ADB). The course, previously offered in 2015 and 2016, aims to provide participants with a more complete understanding of one of the most relevant emerging issues of ageing societies today: long-term care for older people.

At at the end of the course participants will be able to:

  • to explain why there is an urgent need to develop comprehensive care systems in the Asia-Pacific region, and why the current systems are not sustainable or equitable
  • to articulate what care for older people means, and therefore inform what care services should aim to provide
  • to highlight some of the key policy and programmes options available to stakeholders in the region for the development of care systems
  • to understand how to apply tools that can be used in the design and implementation of care services.

The training course for 2018 intake is to be announced.
