AbstractPromoting health and well-being from conception to old age needs clear strategies addressing population health needs with a special focus on key stages in life. This life-course approach enables the development of integrated strategies that are responsive to evolving needs, changing demographics, epidemiological, social, cultural, environmental and behavioural factors, and widening health inequities or equity gaps. This profile highlights the work of Department of Family Health and Research in the WHO Regional Office for South-East Asia. The Department, in collaboration with various stakeholders and partner agencies, provides support to the Member States in promoting health at key stages of life.
