Although populations around the world are rapidly ageing, evidence that increasing longevity is being accompanied by an extended period of good health is scarce. A coherent and focused public health response that spans multiple sectors and stakeholders is urgently needed.
The Policy Discourse of Active Ageing: Some Reflections
Epidemiological studies show that older persons are particularly affected by poor oral health, with negative consequences on their general health. Diseases such as dental caries, periodontal disease, tooth loss, dry mouth or oral cancer affect their chewing function and nutritional intake, as well as their ability to interact socially, thus leading to a drastic decrease in quality of life or even death. Lifelong oral health aims to maintain good oral health and an optimal quality of life through oral health promotion, risk assessment, disease prevention, early diagnosis, and intervention at all stages of life. Oral health in ageing society - integration of oral health and general health. Tokyo Declaration Global Strategy and Action Plan on ageing and health
The European Union EU is a conglomerate of more than million people, The ageing population is triggering dramatic demographic, epidemiological, and anthropological changes, highlighting the importance of active and healthy ageing AHA. In Europe, the most common household type is single occupancy This household type also recorded the highest increase from to 3. These findings highlight several questions from both an individual and public perspective.
Active Ageing in Europe: Adding Healthy Life to Years
Today, for the first time in history, most people can expect to live into their 60s and beyond 1. When combined with marked falls in fertility rates, these increases in life expectancy are leading to the rapid ageing of populations around the world. These changes are dramatic and the implications are profound. A child born in Brazil or Myanmar in can expect to live 20 years longer than one born just 50 years ago. In the Islamic Republic of Iran in , only around 1 in 10 of the popu- lation is older than 60 years. And the pace of population ageing is much faster than was the case in the past.
By the end of the first half of the twentieth century most European states had introduced public pension schemes of one sort or another. In doing so they were affirming the role of the state in providing individuals with a form of support that all but a few would struggle to provide for themselves. The objectives of these schemes were generally quite limited: to reduce the risk of poverty in old age by facilitating savings during working life. The rationale was simple: to provide access to financial support - a regular and reliable income — for a time of life when the ability to work was increasingly impaired by loss of health or functional ability. In the second half of the century, after the second world war, increasing affluence combined with a more demanding view of the responsibilities of government to improve the generosity of pensions and to expand welfare systems in ways that conferred other benefits on their older populations besides a basic pension income, including the provision of social care e. Policy was still broadly conceived as a collective response to age-related losses that undermined independence.
Metrics details. The public health policy agenda oriented towards healthy ageing becomes the highest priority for the European countries. The article discusses the healthy ageing concept and its possible determinants with an aim to identify behavioral patterns related to healthy ageing in selected European countries. The healthy ageing is assessed based on a composite indicator of self-assessed health, functional capabilities and life meaningfulness. The logistic regression models are used to assess the impact of the healthy lifestyle index, psycho-social index and socio-economic status on the probability of healthy ageing i. The lifestyle and psychosocial indexes are created as a sum of behaviors that might be important for healthy ageing.

Prevalence of healthy aging and factors associated in Thai urban elderly, Bangkok, Thailand
World Health Organization: Geneva, Switzerland. Not mentioned. ISBN Enhancement of longevity has been witnessed throughout human history but at a slow pace. High childhood mortality, rampant communicable diseases with no definitive treatment, poor hygiene and widespread poverty had kept the human longevity low within a narrow range.
Predictors of healthy ageing: public health policy targets
John R. And those who reach 60 years of age can expect to live longer than ever before. When combined with marked falls in fertility rates, these increases in life expectancy are leading to the rapid ageing of populations around the world. These changes are dramatic, and they have profound implications for each of us as individuals, as well as for society more broadly. Yet, the extent of the opportunities that arise from increased longevity will depend heavily on one key factor: health.
Purpose - Population aging is a global phenomenon affecting many countries including Thailand. Healthy aging is the key to many challenges that come with population aging. This study aimed to estimate prevalence of healthy aging and identify factors related to healthy aging among Thai urban elderly in Bangkok, Thailand. Data collection was done by face-to-face interviews using questionnaires at Lumpini Park, Bangkok.
Да, это. Он - лжец. Он вел себя бесчестно по отношению ко многим людям, и Сьюзан Флетчер - одна из. Он очень о многом ей не сказал - о многих вещах, которых теперь стыдился. Она была его иллюзией, его живой фантазией.
Но это значит… значит… что мы не можем… - Это значит, что нужен другой план действий. - Фонтейн, как обычно, говорил спокойно и деловито. Глаза Джаббы по-прежнему выражали шок и растерянность, когда сзади раздался душераздирающий крик: - Джабба.
Не знаю… - В голосе слышалась нерешительность. - Я бы только… - Не надо спешить, друг. Мне стыдно это говорить, но полиция у нас в Севилье далеко не так эффективна, как на севере. Паспорт этому человеку вернут только через несколько дней. Если вы назовете мне его имя, я сделаю все, чтобы он получил свой паспорт немедленно.
Именно здесь вирус мог бы причинить наибольший ущерб, и именно здесь Джабба проводил большую часть времени. Однако в данный момент у него был перерыв и он поглощал пирог с сыром и перцем в круглосуточной столовой АНБ. Джабба собирался взять третий кусок, когда зазвонил мобильный телефон. - Говорите, - сказал он, быстро проглотив пирог. - Джабба, - проворковала женщина в ответ.
Сьюзан почувствовала, что у нее сводит желудок. - А что. - Он говорит, что вручит победителю ключ. - Ключ. - В этом и заключается его замысел.
