Order code: CD 611

Reaching a satisfactory old age hinges on many factors that affect persons,
families, communities, and nations. We must foster research that will uncover empirical evidence about the aging process in the Region of the Americas, as well as studies that will help us understand the risks and threats to the health of older adults. For example: How healthy are the years of life gained? Which public health interventions will bring about gains in life expectancy free of disability?
The survey to evaluate the determinants of health and well-being among the
elderly in Latin America and the Caribbean (known for its Spanish acronym, SABE) tapped more than 11,000 persons 60 years old and older in seven of the Region’s cities: Buenos Aires (Argentina), Bridgetown (Barbados), São Paulo (Brasil), Santiago (Chile), Havana (Cuba), México City (Mexico), and Montevideo (Uruguay). SABE gathered data about older adults’physical and mental health, financial situation,
family support, work history, and housing conditions. The results included in the country reports represent a contribution to the research agenda on the health of older adults.
