KPMG Survey Report: An Uncertain Age

Categories: Research.

The report explains that, almost none of the world’s societies have truly prepared for the crisis that is the lack of long-term care for the rapidly aging population.  The report argues that if the current health system fails, devastating consequences will arise for society, the elderly, their families and the economy. As a result, the report calls for “swift action.” The three main findings the report puts forth are: innovation in public and private financing are needed to fund care for the aging population, greater integration is needed to reduce organizational boundaries and to focus on people’s aspirations and needs instead of strictly treating disease, and the issue of care for the aging population should be placed as a higher priority for governments, the private sector, non-governmental organizations and the public as a whole. The report argues that only through these measures of wide scale involvement can the issues of preparation for old age be addressed.
