Switzerland has one of the highest life expectancy in the world combined with a generous health care system. This could lead to fiscal spending issues in the future as less workers are supporting more retirees.

"In 2006 life expectancy at birth was 79 years for men and 84 years for women. It is among the highest in the world.

The Swiss citizens are covered by a compulsory universal health-insurance coverage, permitting access to a broad range of modern medical services. The healthcare system compares well with other European countries and patients are largely satisfied with it. However, spending on health is particularly high, with 11.5% of GDP (2003) and, from 1990, a steady increase is observed, reflecting the high prices of the services provided With ageing populations and new healthcare technologies, health spending will likely continue to rise.

Simply put, an aging population implies that in the future there will be more retirees being supported by fewer workers."
