    Abstract: Countries in the Asia Pacific region face an aging population due to declining fertility rates and rising life expectancy. This demographic transition is accompanied by an increase in the number of people requiring long-term care as well as a relative decrease in the supply of informal care. However, in many countries there is no coordinated long-term care (LTC) system in place. There is a growing need to establish and finance integrated long-term care systems to support older people, their families and communities. Recognizing this issue, The Asian Development Bank (ADB) approved regional capacity development technical assistance (RETA) for Strengthening Developing Member Countries' Capacity in Elderly Care to help increase the capacity to develop policies and plan for LTC system development.

    Institute for Health Policy (IHP) conducted the country diagnostic study on LTC for Sri Lanka. This report covers policy and regulatory frameworks related to elder care, needs of older people, supply of care, capacity of LTC provision, the constraints and development of human resources and financing of LTC. The study highlights the growing need to provide LTC and examines educational, institutional, and policy changes that may be undertaken to meet this need. It examines financing options and proposes a national strategy for a system for LTC for older persons.
