    What are governments doing to tackle ageing population?

    An example is the UK.

    One way is by funding the NHS with more money so that way they can afford to look after more elderly people. As well as starting to give out pension benefits so they can afford daily necessities.

    Another way is by creating jobs for the younger generation so there are more people who can apply to work in day-care centres and nursing homes in order to look after the elderly.

    There are also pro-natal policies in countries such as France to produce a more favourable age structure and dependency ratio. Where incentives are offered to couples who have more than one child. For example, the more children a woman has, the earlier she will be allowed to retire on a full pension.

    Other places such as Singapore also have a pro-natal strategy to promote the idea of having more offspring (as of 2001). This is to try and increase the population by 40% over 40 years so there are more young people to help the elderly.

    Hope you can find this somewhat helpful, you may have also studied some other case studies too!
