Global Health and Aging
Richard Suzman (pf); John Beard (pf)
The world is facing a situation without precedent: We soon will have more older people than children and more people at extreme old age than ever before. Key questions arise: Will population aging be accompanied by a longer period of good health, a sustained sense of well-being, and extended periods of social engagement and productivity, or will it be associated with more illness, disability, and dependency? How will aging affect health care and social costs? Are these futures inevitable, or can we act to establish a physical and social infrastructure that might foster better health and wellbeing in older age? How will population aging play out differently for low-income countries that will age faster than their counterparts have, but before they become industrialized and wealthy? This report attempts to address some of these questions. Above all, it emphasizes the central role that health will play moving forward. The report looks at global trends in aging and health, with an emphasis on trends in aging, disability, and family structure and what they may indicate for the future. Figures. This is a print on demand report.
