With the general goal of 'investigating into different key factors driving health care expenditures and in particular their interaction with particular reference to ageing', the Strategic Objectives of AHEAD are:
- An assessment of pressures on health spending in the existing EU and in selected candidate countries, looking both at those arising directly from ageing and at those affected by changing incomes, social change and methods of expenditure control.
- The development of models embedded in EXCEL spreadsheets for projecting future health spending.
- Estimation of confidence limits for these projections.
