Peter Lambreghts has published a new article, entitled 'Every Euro Counts'. The article analyzes the organization of the support of disabled people from an economic point of view. In times of economic crisis where every euro counts, this conclusion contains food for thought.


Already at the beginning of this year the Expertise Centre Independent Living has issued a well-underpinned standpoint about market forces in the support of disabled people. The report has served as a basis for a dialogue with leading economic and policy experts in order to further refine our own expertise. “Every Euro counts” by Peter Lambreghts is a logical follow-up to the standpoint which was issued at the beginning of this year. When we start applying the economic insights and the lessons learned from abroad to the care and support of disabled people in the Flanders as we know it, then it brings us to a plea in favour of efficiency. The actual economic crisis and the imminent ageing of the population only do increase the sense of urgency.

Not only are we faced with an ever increasing care demand, the care demand itself is subject to change. In order to be able to confront these evolutions the government should start carrying out profound reforms towards a system which is based on the demand instead of on the offer of the VAPH. This would result in more support and at the same time would correspond more accurately with the demander's' individual needs. Governmental funds would also be used in a more effective and efficient way and, on top of that, would generate more social return on investments.
