By: Fundación Economía y Salud
The project "Europe's Elderly" focuses on the creation of 1,264,576 beds for European Union countries that have not achieved the ratio recommended by the WHO. This action would generate 632,288 new jobs with an investment of nearly 75 billion (75,000 million) euros, through suitable public-private collaboration.
Presiding over the event will be Ricardo Mairal Usón, Rector of the UNED, Universidad Nacional de Educación a Distancia, Miguel Garrido de la Cierva, Vice-President of the CEOE, Confederació
In the words of the President of the Fundación Economía y Salud, Alberto Giménez Artés, "the pandemic we are suffering under has been especially punishing for the elderly and has brought the models of social attention that should exist to the table. It is necessary to continue this debate in depth, but we must also, in parallel, work to provide the system with the necessary resources. This will not only improve the quality of life of the elderly, but will also contribute to economic growth, generating investment and jobs, along with important returns".
The Project "Europe's Elderly" of the Fundación Economía y Salud shows that the sector of attention to dependence is a strategic opportunity for economic growth in the UE, as it reduces the public déficit, stimulates economic activity, and generates employment.
