[Special issue on healthcare: Healthy ageing and the future of public healthcare systems]
The “Special issue on healthcare” is part of a series of publications produced by the European Foresight Monitoring Network (EFMN project, 2004-2008). EFMN is a Europe-wide network inspired and fi nanced by the European Commission within the framework of the Foresight Knowledge Sharing Platform implemented under the Research Framework Programme (FP7).
The “issue analysis” was one of the main activities of the network and aimed at identifying and analysing “key emerging issues” which are relevant for European future S&T policies. With a focus on public health systems, the EFMN Issue Analysis 2008 addressed a topic of high importance in foresight activities at national or regional level. Future challenges, such as an ageing population call for reforms of public health systems that exceed national borders. This paper exploits how the topic of “healthy ageing and the future of public healthcare systems” features in most recent forward looking exercises and prospective studies around the world focusing on the most important emerging challenges for the future. It consolidates the global perspective on healthy ageing and the future of public healthcare systems and how the issue is displayed by various communities/nations/regions.
