Ageing – a renewed strategy to tackle Europe's demographic challenge

The EU’s Dealing with the impact of an ageing population in the EU (2009 Ageing Report, 29 April 2009) takes an in-depth look at the economic and budgetary impact of an ageing population over the long-term until 2060. Amongst other things it emphasises the need to improve the cost effectiveness of long term care provision through the introduction of eHealth and telecare.
