Supporting healthy ageing requires strong public policies that take into account the specific needs, concerns and barriers to access of older adults. However, ageing related policies and long-term care systems differ substantially amongst EU countries, and a consensus on how to organize care to address growing inequalities is missing.
This seminar, organised by the World Bank Group, will provide the opportunity to share diverse expertise and country-level experiences drawn from the scientific, policy and care provider communities. Speakers and participants will draw on a range of country examples to:
- Highlight policy level interventions to tackle inequalities and support life-long investments,
- Explore the organization of services supporting healthy ageing and longevity, and
- Discuss EU and country level financing opportunities
The event - in hybrid format - will also aim to enrich and expand the World Bank’s network of experts and stakeholders engaged in the crucial issue of healthy ageing and to contribute to the dialog underpinning the development of the European Care Strategy.
AGE has supported the organisation of this seminar and several speakers from our membership and network are taking part.
