Globally, the number of elderly has tripled since the 1950s and is expected to triple again in the next 50 years.
ACCESS Health International works to help provide high quality, affordable care for the elderly and the chronically ill. Our method is to identify, analyze, and document best practices in managing the elderly and chronically ill patients and to consult with public and private providers to help implement new and better cost effective ways to care for this population. We also encourage entrepreneurs to create new businesses to serve the needs of this rapidly expanding population. At present, ACCESS Health works on these issues in high income countries, including Singapore, Sweden, and the United States. ACCESS Health is working to expand this work to low and middle income countries, including India and China.

Singapore has one of the fastest aging populations in the world, resulting from a fertility rate that is well below the replacement rate and a life expectancy that is among the highest in the world. Today, one in seven Singaporeans is over sixty five years old, and that ratio is expected to increase to one in three over the next thirty years. ACCESS Health Singapore documents, analyzes, and shares lessons from the comprehensive, long term planning process of the government to reorient its healthcare system to the needs of the elderly and chronically ill.

ACCESS Health Sweden analyzes how specific programs and policies improve and modernize care for older adults. Because we are locally based, ACCESS Health Sweden is able to participate in the response to the aging population in the country and to identify strengths and weaknesses in the elderly care strategies of the country. We use this knowledge to discuss challenges and opportunities with Swedish national and local leaders and to inspire and guide other countries as they seek to improve care for their own people.

According to estimates from the US Department of Health and Human Services, people aged sixty five and older will represent nineteen percent of the population by 2030, up from just over twelve percent in 2000. And a 2013 survey by the Pew Research Center found that seventy five percent of adults in this age group are living with a chronic condition, such as high blood pressure, diabetes, or heart disease. With four in ten Americans currently tasked with the care of their elderly and chronically ill relatives, the US healthcare system urgently needs to adjust to meet the rapidly growing demand for high quality and affordable elder and tong term care. ACCESS Health United States helps practitioners and policymakers locate, learn from, and scale up pockets of excellence in elder and long term care.
