About the Tool
The cost simulation tool for long-term care systems provides a way to estimate how much it would cost governments in Latin America and the Caribbean to implement this type of system. The simulation tool is meant to assist policymakers as they decide who will receive support from the system and what type of services they will receive.
The simulation tool is meant to assist policymakers as they decide who will receive support from the system and what type of services they will receive. The ultimate and long-term goal of this tool is to create a space for informed discussion about the need to implement long-term care systems in the region, and about the possibility of starting off at a smaller scale to then expand the system according to the population’s growing needs.
We invite you to watch the video on how to use the cost simulation tool and download this technical note with more details about how it works.
