Abstract

Addressing the healthcare needs of an ageing population: the need for an integrated solution

All stakeholders involved in healthcare are well aware of the ticking time bomb of our ageing world with demand exceeding supply even within the most affluent of countries. The Director- General of the World Health Organisation (WHO) has recently drawn global attention to the fact that even in low income countries people are living longer; however pointedly adds that longevity is not enough. To benefit society as a whole there needs to be a refocus on how later years in life are significant to the older person; with attention to dignity and good health [1].
