About the Global Observatory of Long-Term Care

The Global Observatory of Long-Term Care (GoLTC) is a platform to facilitate cross-national learning to improve and strengthen care systems. It builds on the previous LTCcovid.org website and aims to continue to identify shared challenges in relation to Long-Term Care and showcase how different countries and localities are addressing them, sharing research evidence and supporting collaborations.

The Observatory is part of the International Long-Term Care Policy Network (ILPN), at the Care Policy and Evaluation Centre (CPEC) at the London School of Economics and Political Science. It is funded partly by CPEC and has also received support through an innovation prize from LSE Innovation.
