Ageing, health and innovation: Policy reforms to facilitate healthy and active ageing in OECD countries
Abstract:While all OECD countries are experiencing unprecedented demographic change, which has the potential to unravel health and social care systems, a negative outcome is not inevitable. This chapter presents some of the policies and measures that can be implemented to support and facilitate healthy and active ageing. These policies have the potential to mitigate the impact of demographic change on society as well as helping older people to continue to be active and productive citizens whether as workers, consumers, volunteers or care givers.
