Description

Demographic development is happening across the world and, according to WHO (2021), between 2015 and 2050, the share of the world's population over the age of 60 will almost double from 12% to 22%.

The project "Development of public health policy for the elderly in Brazil, Norway and Slovakia (UFEBNS)" will include two qualitative studies.
