Healthy Ageing - A Challenge for Europe (Short Version)

Approximately one third of Europe's population will be aged 60 and over by 2025, with a particularly significant increase in the number of people aged 80 and over. This will have an enormous impact on European societies.

This was why in 2003 the Swedish National Institute of Public Health, with the support of the European Commission and 12 partners including the World Health Organization, European Older People's Platform (AGE), EuroHealthNet and concerned stakeholders initiated the 'Healthy Ageing ' project under the European Union Public Health Programme.

The aims of this publication are to:

  • review and analyse existing data on health and ageing;
  • make recommendations for policy at EU and member state levels;
  • disseminate the findings and facilitate implementation.
