Access to Medical Care for Older Australians - 2012

The importance of a robust framework for medical services in aged care is growing as the number of older Australians increases.

Between 2010 and 2050, the number of older people (65-84 years) will more than double, from 2.6 million to 6.3 million, and the number of very old (85 and over) will more than quadruple from 0.4 million to 1.8 million.

Urgent policy development and planning for aged care is needed now.
