World Report on Ageing and Health

John Beard, Alana Officer, Andrew Cassels et al., Eds.: World Health Organization WHO, (2015)

Making these investments will have valuable social and economic returns, both in terms of health and wellbeing of older people and in enabling their on-going participation in society Executive summaries : Arabic; Chinese; English; French; German; Japanese; Portuguese; Russian; Spanish
