Low-cost care in India: a solution for the problems of future?
31.8% Indians are under the age of 15. It is expected that, in 2020, the average age of an Indian will be 29 years. That means, India will have a huge working population for the coming decades. But at the same time, the average age of people in the developed countries are going higher and higher. For example, by 2050 the average age of a German will be 50 years.
Most of the developed nations will have high numbers of old people, who are not able to work. As resources to work for them (young people) will be scarce, the already high costs of medical care will be unaffordable for these old people.
In such a situation, India will have a very big part to play. It will be difficult for India to provide jobs for the biggest working age population. So the young people in India, who will hopefully be willing to take care of old people from the other parts of the world, will be a solution for Europe's and America's age problem.
