This is a study of long-term care which has been brought together with equity, as it is at the core of welfare state and social policy definitions. It appears equity is a central theme of thw welfare state, and an attractive label in social policy making, but it is still an elusive issue. The few existing equity studies in long-term care address very specific interpretations of equity, some are locally restricted or include only one type of service provision within the complex areana of long-term care.
