Abstract

In this chapter, we conclude our book, highlighting our main arguments and summarising our findings, and provide a succinct overview of our process. We also suggest further areas for exploration.
Healthy aging is a topic around the globe. Populations are rapidly ageing. Indeed, according to the UN world population prospects projections (United Nations 2019), many countries across the globe, especially those classified as middle and high income, are entering a period where the population aged over 65 years old may be in the majority. The study of human ageing is not exclusive to gerontology and related fields. It should be multidisciplinary field that integrates information from diverse areas of study, including sociology, psychology, public policy, biology, health sciences, humanities, economics, and the arts and design disciplines.
