Notes
  • This paper reviews policies in the area of healthy ageing. With the ageing of OECD countries’ population over coming decades, maintaining health in old age will become increasingly important. Successful policies in this area can increase the potential labour force and the supply of non-market services to others. They can also delay the need for longer-term care for the elderly. A first section briefly defines what is meant by healthy ageing and discusses similar concepts – such as “active ageing”. The paper then groups policies into four different types and within each, it describes the range of individual types of programmes that can be brought to bear to enhance improved health of the elderly. A key policy issue in this area concerns whether such programmes have a positive effect on health outcomes and whether they are costeffective.Ce document de travail examine les politiques relatives au vieillissement en bonne santé. Compte tenu du vieillissement démographique annoncé dans les pays de l’OCDE au cours des prochaines décennies, préserver la bonne santé des personnes âgées deviendra de plus en plus important. Des politiques réussies dans ce domaine peuvent augmenter la main-d’oeuvre potentielle ainsi que l’offre de services non marchands. Elles peuvent aussi retarder le besoin de soins de longue durée pour les personnes âgées. Une première partie définit brièvement ce que l’on entend par « vieillir en bonne santé » et analyse des concepts similaires – tels que le « vieillissement actif ». Le rapport présente ensuite quatre groupes de politiques et, pour chacun, les différents programmes mobilisables afin d’améliorer l’état de santé des personnes âgées. Une question importante sur l’action publique dans ce domaine consiste à savoir si ces programmes ont un effet positif sur les résultats de santé et s’ils sont coût-efficaces.
