ISPPS WP 1999-04: Ageing Population: A Challenge for the Philippines in the Next Millennium

This paper is presents the demographic situation of the country and the projected population with emphasis on the older age groups. It also includes an illustrative situation of the elderly in the Philippines to highlight the emerging issues that need to be taken into consideration in policy formulation. Also discussed are the implications of aging to the individuals, the families and the government and the initiatives for older people in the Asia-Pacific region and in the Philippines. Current population projections for the Philippines indicate that the ageing process which will tremendously increase the number of elderly will start by the first quarter of the 21st century. It also shows the increased feminization of ageing, particularly those in the rural areas as what is now being experienced in Japan. At this early, there is a need for the development of technology which will address the concerns of rural women. The issues and concerns related to ageing should not be ignored just because they are not immediate. The solutions will be more difficult and painful the longer they are delayed
