Like many other countries, Malta is facing a tremendous challenge in light of its growing elderly population.   Many IAHSA members had an opportunity to see first hand the care being provided in Malta when they attended IAHSA’s 7th International Conference in 2007, an event that has fostered ongoing networking and sharing of care solution.

According to an article in The Independent, the Maltese government is taking steps to deal with the pressure the elderly population will place not only on its long term services but on the health care system in general.

IAHSA Board Chair Alexander Tranter is CEO of CareMalta, one of the leading provider groups in Malta.   CareMalta is working closely with the Maltese government to help the country meet these challenges.
