International evidence on the impact of budget cuts on long-term care systems

OVERVIEW

The financial crisis has led many countries to rein in public expenditure, sometimes with very significant implications for public services. This event explored how different countries 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 the funding arrangements for services. It brought together experts from the UK, US, Germany, Italy, Sweden, Netherlands, Poland and the OECD, and it was funded by the LSE HEIF5 Knowledge Exchange programme.
