1. Webinar: Where do we find the money to fund healthcare for an ageing population?
Policy-makers worry about where to find the money to care for an ageing population. Ageing may have an impact on the size and productivity of the workforce and ultimately reduce tax revenues.
Common responses are to increase the age of retirement – both to reduce pension outlays and to maintain the share of the population in the formal labour market – and to reduce entitlements such as for health care to save money. But how much will revenues for health decline as populations age? What are the available policy options, and will these improve the sustainability of health financing? What is the impact of increasing the retirement age and how can we support an older workforce? Join us to find out!

3. Webinar: Can the costs of caring for an ageing population be controlled?
Concerns about unsustainable health spending dominate the discussion about population ageing. However, research has shown that population ageing is not a major driver of growth in health expenditure.
Nevertheless, policy choices about how health services are delivered, the prices paid for services, medicines and technologies, and volumes of care will ultimately determine how ageing societies affect health spending patterns.
So, what are the implications of these findings? How can the health and long-term care costs associated with population ageing be contained? Join us in to find out!
