Interests: healthy ageing communities
Population ageing is a global phenomenon. Around the world, the epidemiological burden has shifted to age-related, noncommunicable diseases, whereas long-term care for older people is not yet systematically financed in many countries. While universal access to health and long-term care is the objective of many countries, health promotion that encourages people to lead a healthy and productive life is increasingly important; however, it has yet to be addressed in many parts of the world. This Special Issue will bring together papers that focus on evidence and practices that lead to healthy ageing in the scope of public health, social policy, and several areas in gerontology.
Research that examines how older people can age healthily are urgently required. Intervention studies that assess the effectiveness of community-integrated models are required in both high- and low-income countries. Observational studies that determine the factors that influence healthy ageing and quality of life will help create policies to address the determinants of healthy ageing communities. In addition, qualitative and mixed-method studies are important to help us understand the interaction and conceptual frameworks of several determinants in different context.
Aside from health promotion, this Special Issue welcomes research that addresses health and social care in communities, the strengthening of informal care, and care prevention for the older people.
