The case studies in this book focus on the emergence, extent, and nature of national policies on ageing and associated strategies to address long-term care needs. Key opportunities for, and constraints on, policy are identified in this first round of regional studies, written by prominent researchers in Hong Kong, Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, and Thailand, who are partners in the Ageing Research Network of the Asian Development Research Forum. The case studies are set in the context of regional and international plans of action on ageing and the deliberations of the Second World Assembly on Ageing held in 2002.
