Mongolia : Developing Elderly Care System and Services in Mongolia

Sovereign Project | 56211-001

The proposed project would support the Government of Mongolia in developing a cohesive national financial, legal, and policy framework that would be the basis for delivery of integrated elderly care services while clearly delineating roles and responsibilities for agencies such as the MLSP, MOH, and Ministry of Finance (MOF) and aimag level structures. Best practices on delivery of elderly care services from other countries such as the People's Republic of China, Japan, and the Republic of Korea would be studied and adapted as appropriate. Innovative financing mechanisms for elderly care such as publicprivate partnerships will also be explored.
