dc.description.abstractThe Singapore government has been planning for the healthcare needs of an ageing population for decades. Through incremental changes, it has made progress in two broad areas: first, Singapore has developed a healthcare financing system that helps Singaporeans to pay for a basic level of healthcare, especially in the hospital setting. Second, it has become a norm for the government to work with the private sector and community organisations to improve the accessibility, quality, and cost effectiveness of healthcare. By focusing primarily on Singapore’s experience, this case study examines two closely related issues: the schemes that might help citizens to pay for healthcare as they age, and how healthcare costs can be managed so that healthcare is affordable for users, profitable for providers, and fiscally sustainable for governments.
