Ageing Horizons Issue No. 6, 1–11View Journal Article / Working Paper
What should governments do about the provision of longterm care for frail elderly people in ageing societies? This paper considers some of the difficulties of taking a global view on this matter. It examines differences and similarities in policy context between developing and developed countries, and asks to what extent and in what way the problems of policy-making for long-term care are problems of fairness.
