Released on 7 May 2013.

Adelina Comas Herrera has recently worked on a project analysing the costs of long term care and insurance solutions that supplement public systems to meet rising costs of long term care. This has become a very pertinent issue as the costs of long term care are set to double in most developing countries over the next 20 years. This project funded by the AXA Research Fund explored how private health insurance can support a public system in an efficient and equitable way that prevents people facing catastrophic costs of care. Results found that private long term insurance contributes successfully in countries where there is a universal system that covers part of the costs of care.
