About the book

Population aging, which is touted as the humanity’s greatest triumph, is also one of the greatest challenges of our time. Prolongation of life span does not imply that the extra years bring about continued health and prosperity. Ageing, marked by these trends, is said to put an increased burden on the social, economic, and health care demands in all countries, especially the developing countries, such as India. When considering the demographic inversion and associated challenges, it becomes evident that investments in ageing and health are necessary to ensure human rights and sustainable development. Given that people are living longer and the proportion of older adults in our society is higher, understanding the ageing process and facilitating healthy ageing are critically important. The book seeks to inform the public on a variety of topics related to ageing, with the ultimate aim of promoting good health for elderly people.
