Hong Kong is promoting healthy aging and the long term care of older people. Hong Kong is transforming the healthcare system from a primarily acute care system to a comprehensive system for acute and chronic care. ACCESS Health Hong Kong works with local academic institutions and industry associations to develop policies and programs for healthcare and elder care delivery. ACCESS Health brings together experts and organizations facing similar healthcare challenges to share experiences in a structured process known as joint learning. Through this process, experts and organizations share knowledge of what works and what does not. ACCESS Health intends to establish a Joint Learning Program to address the problems of elder care and primary care within Hong Kong.
