  • Within the next five years, for the first time in history, the population of people aged 65 and older will outnumber the children under the age of five . World Health Organization सितंबर 25, 2012
  • Populations are ageing fastest in low and middle-income countries . A transition towards an older society that took more than a century in Europe is now taking place in less than 25 years in countries like Brazil, China and Thailand . Countries risk being taking by surprise and caught unprepared . World Health Organization सितंबर 25, 2012
  • World Health Organization सितंबर 25, 2012
  • Numerous determinants of healthy and active ageing lie beyond the health system. They also start to exert their influence at earlier stages in life. Our response, therefore, needs to tackle issues across the life course and in many social spheres. But the health sector, too, needs to adapt. Overwhelmingly the health challenges in older age are the consequence of non-communicable disease. We need to develop health systems which can provide the chronic care that these diseases and their risk factors require. World Health Organization सितंबर 25, 2012
  • Being physically active, eating a healthy diet, avoiding the harmful use of alcohol and not smoking or using tobacco products can all reduce the risk of chronic disease in older age. These behaviours need to start in early life and continue into older age World Health Organization सितंबर 25, 2012
  • While we can reduce the risk of chronic disease through a healthy lifestyle, many people will still develop health problems in older age. We need to detect metabolic changes such as high blood pressure, high blood sugar and high cholesterol early and manage them effectively. But we also need to address the needs of people who already have chronic disease, care for those who can no longer look after themselves and ensure that everyone can die with dignity . World Health Organization सितंबर 25, 2012
  • Social determinants not only influence the health behaviours of people across the life course, they are also an important factor in whether older people can continue to participate. It is therefore important to create physical and social environments that are “age-friendly” and foster the health and participation of older people . World Health Organization सितंबर 25, 2012
  • Many current attitudes to ageing were developed during the 20th century when there were far fewer older people and when social patterns were very different. These patterns of thinking can limit our capacity to identify the real challenges, and to seize the opportunities, of population ageing in the 21st century. We need to develop new models of ageing that will help us create the future society in which we want to live . World Health Organization सितंबर 25, 2012
  • World Health Organization सितंबर 25, 2012
  • The vision of the WHO Global Network of Age-friendly Cities and Communities is to recognize and connect places that are actively working toward creating this future . World Health Organization सितंबर 25, 2012
