Demographic Change and State of Health in Switzerland

Demographic ageing is one of the big challenges for modern societies. Within this project and in comparison with other developed countries, we evaluate workforce potential and not yet exhausted health potentials in Switzerland. The project aims at tracing hints and developing strategies for prevention and health promotion until high age. A special goal is empowering as much people as possible to stay healthy until retirement age.
