How Singapore is preparing for future elderly care

Affordable Excellence

William A Haseltine, President of ACCESS Health International, has written a book called “Affordable Excellence: The Singapore Healthcare Story. How to build and Maintain Sustainable Healthcare Systems”. For anybody interested in policymaking regarding elderly care, the last chapter about how Singapore is planning for the future, is of particular interest and well worth reading. This chapter explains why it makes sense for other countries to watch and study what Singapore is doing to prepare for a major increase of elderly in the population. The chapter gives an understanding of the demographic challenges that Singapore is facing and goes through all major initiatives that are undertaken to address these challenges, both public and private.
The book is published by the Brookings Institution and National University of Singapore Press and can be downloaded at no charge from the ACCESS Health website and from Amazon as an e-book, also at no charge.
