Ethical and Policy Issues in Long-Term Care in China

(p.644) 18.2 Commentary
The Future of Bioethics

Xiaomei Zhai

Oxford University Press

After describing the status quo of population aging, its characteristics and long-term care study in China, this commentary examines challenges to the model of family-based long-term care. Specifically, the author remarks on familism, discusses whose obligation it is to provide the long-term care, and comments on intergeneration justice. The author concludes by calling for a wise policy to achieve the “three win” situation, in which all three parties (the elderly, the non-elderly people, and society) win.

Keywords:   Long-term care, intergeneration justice, ethical and policy issues
