Research Program

The Research Program developed with these strategic funds comprises three related strands:

Healthy Ageing Retirement Incomes Long-Term Care

Healthy Ageing

This area explores the health of ageing cohorts in emerging Asia, to identify feasible interventions and help map future demand for health care and long-term care services. It analyses how health can be best characterised in ageing populations, especially in an emerging economy context.
