Forget me Not: IMA Campaign for the Elderly

The global demography is changing with a considerable increase in the older population in almost all countries. A greater understanding of etiopathogenesis of many diseases leading to newer and more effective treatment options has improved life expectancy. Not just medical advances, economic growth and social development too have contributed to the rising aging population.
 
"According to Population Census 2011 there are nearly 104 million elderly persons (aged 60 years or above) in India" (Elderly in India 2016 Report). "The global share of older people aged 60 years or over is expected to increase from 11.7% in 2013 to 21.1% by 2050. Presently, about two thirds of the world's older persons live in developing countries. By 2050, nearly 8 in 10 of the world's older population will live in the less developed regions. An Indian born in 1950 could expect to live for 37 years, whereas today India's life expectancy at birth nearly doubled to 68 years, by 2050, it is projected to increase to 76 years. As a result, India's population will rise from 1.3 billion today to an estimated 1.7 billion by 2050, with a much larger elderly share of around 340 million" (Press Information Bureau, March 22, 2016). 
 
Heart disease, dementia, diabetes, arthritis, cataract, sleep problems, depression, anxiety are some of the common health conditions prevalent in the elderly.
