Show Notes 
Every country in the world is striving to look after their aging populations whilst maintaining the affordability of their health systems. Iceland is not alone in this challenge, between 2010 and 2020 the population of people over 80 in Iceland has increased by more than 2000 to 12,600. Further more the population aged between 60 and 79 has increased by 16700 to 60,300. This has happened whilst the population between the ages of 0 and 20 has remained static (https://www.statista.com/statistics/594621/total-population-in-iceland-by-age/) 
 
In addition Covid-19 accelerated the need for governments to look for ways to care for their elderly populations outside of the acute healthcare system where catching Covid-19 could be fatal.
