International evidence on the impact of budget cuts on long-term care systems
Date: Monday 22 June 2015
Time: 10:00 16:00
Venue: The Shaw Library, 6 Floor, Old Building, London School of Economics and Political Science
The financial crisis has led many countries to reign in public expenditure, sometimes with very significant implications for public services. This event will explore how different countries have managed the impact of the global recession on their long-term care systems, for instance in terms of changes in the targeting of publicly-funded long-term care services across the population, in the prioritisation of different types of care, and in funding arrangements for services. The seminar brings together experts from the UK, US, Germany, Italy, Sweden, Netherlands, Poland and the OECD, and is funded by an award from the LSE HEIF5 Knowledge Exchange Fund.
