Long-term care for the elderly in Albania: Challenges and key policy issues

While the Albanian population is ageing rapidly, Albania is facing an imminent challenge to ensure the access to affordable and quality long-term care services for all the elderly in need.

Within the framework of the Joint UN Programme “Strategic policy options for SDG financing”, the ILO has conducted a policy study on the long-term care services for the elderly. This report presents the estimate of the future demand of long-term care, reviews the current provision of long-term care services, and discusses key issues in the long-term care policy in Albania.
