World Health Day 2012: April 7, 2012: Ageing and Health

Ageing and health – to which each and every one of us can relate – is the theme of this year’s World Health Day. Using the slogan “Good health adds life to years,” campaign activities and materials will focus on how good health throughout life can help older men and women lead full and productive lives and be a resource for their families and communities.   Over the past century life expectancy has increased dramatically and the world will soon have more older people than children. Populations are ageing everywhere, but less-developed countries are witnessing the fastest change. This social transformation represents both challenges and opportunities. In particular, countries may only have a single generation to prepare their health and social systems for an ageing world.
