The Longitudinal Study of Ageing and Health (LSAHP) is the first multi-actor longitudinal study on aging in the Philippines implemented by the Demographic Research and Development Foundation, Inc. (DRDF). With comprehensive information coming from a nationally representative sample of Filipinos aged 60 years and over, their caregivers, and adult children, it is primarily designed to 1) investigate the health status and well-being, as well as their correlates, of older Filipinos; and 2) assess the determinants of health status and transitions in health status and overall well-being.

From UPDate Diliman:
How healthy are the older Pinoys and what is the quality of their lives? These were the issues looked into by the 2018 Longitudinal Study of Ageing and Health in the Philippines (LSAHP) and will be discussed at the forum “Ageing and Health in the Philippines: Findings from the 2018 LSAHP” on December 9, 9 a.m. at the Park Inn by Radisson, North Edsa, Quezon City.
The number of older people in the Philippines is the fastest growing sector in the country, accounting currently for seven (7%) percent of the total population and is projected to increase to 16 percent by 2045. Such trends are inevitable due to improvements in health and longevity, but with it also comes issues such an their frailty, age-related health problems and increasing disabilities.
After its fifth attempt in winning the bid, the Demographic Research and Development Foundation, Inc. (DRDF) has finally been selected to be the service provider in developing the data entry system for the Commission on Higher Education (CHED)’s latest Graduate Tracer Study (GTS) Program, awarded this April 2018.
