About Health, Aging & Society

We live in an era when health and aging greatly impact, and present unique challenges and opportunities for, societies around the world.


Significant challenges exist in addressing health, social care, welfare, and accommodation needs of increasing numbers and proportions of older people, while older people themselves face new economic and political circumstances.


Meanwhile, emerging positive activities and cultures of aging have radically changed capacities, experiences, and expectations in later life.
