New book on shaping long-term care policy in the emerging economies of Asia


A new book edited by CEPAR Associate Investigator Dr Vasoontara Yiengprugsawan and CEPAR Director Scientia Professor John Piggott analyses the challenges of long-term care policy development and implications from advanced long-term care systems and a current trajectory in emerging economies in Asia, including China, Indonesia, Thailand, and Vietnam.

The book - Shaping Long-Term Care in Emerging Asia: Policy and Country Experiences - approaches the subject through comparative analysis on what works and what does not to provide insight into public policy options for sustainable long-term care provision and financing mechanisms. How the countries adopt different approaches to health and social systems towards long-term care development could provide important insight and perspectives into policy options in the region.

This book aims at academics, policymakers and practitioners in health, social, and aged care services and could also be used as a teaching resource for undergraduate students in health and social sciences and postgraduate programs in public health, epidemiology, social demography, gerontology, and nursing.

The book will be of interest to a wider audience not only on social and health consequences of population ageing but also health and social policy relating to older persons.
