Summary
The profiles reflect the general situation prevailing at the latest dates available. It also highlights the importance of integration of aging and health concerns with health systems development as many of the problems of older persons are inextricably linked to the more basic problems of limited access to care, poor quality of services and lack of financial and material resources to meet the needs of this growing sector of the population.
