Country of origin: UK

The Department of Health recently commissioned two literature reviews and two research studies on the costs and benefits of eliminating age discrimination in the provision of health and social care. This was to inform decisions on whether to pursue legislation to outlaw discrimination in the provision of health and social services.

Reports of these reviews and studies have now been made publicly available on the websites of the institutions concerned.

The reports are:

? A literature review of the likely costs and benefits of legislation to prohibit age discrimination in health, social care and mental health services and definitions of age discrimination that might be operationalised for measurement (Centre for Policy on Ageing)
? Cost-effectiveness analysis and ageism: a review of the theoretical literature (University of Leeds, Leeds Institute of Health Services)
? Age discrimination in mental health services: London School of Economics (Personal Social Services Research Unit), University of Wales, Swansea (Centre for Social Carework Research) and King?s College London (Centre for the Economics of Mental Health)
? The costs of addressing age discrimination in social care (University of Kent, Personal Social Services Research Unit)
