Prototype of the Integration of a Long-Term Care System for Dependent Older Persons

Project undertaken by: College of Population Studies, Chulalongkorn University and Office of the National Economics and Social Development Board

Partner: Office of the National Economics and Social Development Board

About research: The first objective is to distill the knowledge and lessons learnt from communities with long-term care systems, which have implemented coordination among health facilities, academic institutes, local administrative organizations, families and people in the communities, to provide appropriate health and social care services. The second objective is to determine concrete and replicable mechanisms driving such long-term care systems and the establishment of a secure quality of life suitable for the context of each community. This study makes use of both primary and secondary data sources


Chula’s encouragement and support for research is excellent for teachers, students, and the public.
