Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

As populations around the world age and the proportion of older individuals grows, the unique challenges of aging are becoming increasingly apparent. The rapid growth of the oldest-old population, the high burden of disease, and the prevalence of disability are challenging public health systems. To address these challenges, public health must prioritize initiatives that prevent major health issues, promote physical and mental well-being, and improve access to quality long-term care.

This Special Issue on aging and public health aims to bring together international perspectives and expertise to advance knowledge and best practices in the field. We welcome contributions from government agencies, civil society organizations, academia, and professionals to help address the pressing public health needs of aging populations.

Through collaboration and a diverse range of research, this Special Issue will help inform policies and initiatives that consider the current and projected trends in aging and public health. We hope it will serve as a valuable resource for all working to promote healthy aging and improve public health outcomes for older adults.
