Health And Aging

(source-WHO report)

In Today's developing countries the rise of chronic noncommunicable diseases such as heart disease, cancer, and diabetes reflects changes in lifestyle and diet as well as aging. Potential economic and societal costs of non-communicable diseases of this type sharply with age and have done ability to affect economic growth.

Humanity's Aging-
Many adults and older age health problems were rooted in early life experience and living conditions, ensuring good child health can benefit older people. In the meantime, generations of children and young adults who grew up in poverty and ill health in developing countries will be entering old age in the coming decades.
In 2010, an estimated 524 million people were age 65 or older- 8% of the world's population. By 2050 this number is expected to nearly triple to about 1.5 billion representing 15% of the world's population. Between 2010 and 2050, the number of older people in less developed countries is projected to increase more than 250 % compared with a 71% increase in developed countries.

New Disease Pattern-
The transition from high to low mortality and fertility that accompanied socio-economic development has also meant a shift in the leading causes of disease and death. Demographers and epidemiologists describe this shift as part of an "epidemiologic transition". Characterized by the working of infectious and acute diseases and the emerging importance of chronic and degenerative diseases. High death rates from infectious diseases are commonly associated with poverty, poor diet, and Limited infrastructure found in developing countries. Although many developing countries still experience high child mortality from infectious and parasitic disease one of the major epidemiologic trends of the current century is the rise of chronic and degenerative disease in countries throughout the world of income level.

So, the impact of changing lifestyle, potential socio-economic development needs to be sustainable for health. The health programs are very helpful to keep good health and to decrease the issues of aging.
