PROJECT DESCRIPTION

This project studies the development of long-term care insurance and services in China. The project will make three contributions: (1) We will document different models of long-term care service provision, funding and governing structure that have emerged in China. (2) We will analyse the costs associated with different long-term care arrangements. (3) We will analyse the scalability of different long-term care models to the level needed given China’s rapid population ageing. The project will be supervised by an interdisciplinary team of top researchers in the field.
