The report that follows, Healthy Aging in Action: Advancing the National Prevention Strategy (HAIA), is the culmination of a review of the scientific literature, as well. Even now, chronic disease accounts for three-quarters of America’s direct health expenditures, 3, 4 with eight out of ten older individuals challenged by one or more chronic diseases.

Equally as important to an effective care management program is the development of a set of expectations for what is required from care managers (Illustration 1).

Aging is characterized by a chronic low-grade sterile inflammation dubbed as inflammaging, which in part originates from accumulating cellular debris. These, acting as danger signals with many intrinsic factors such as cytokines, are sensed by a network of pattern recognition receptors and other cognate receptors, leading to the activation of inflammasomes.

The lives of far too many people in the world are being blighted and cut short by chronic diseases such as heart disease, stroke, canc er, chronic respiratory diseases and diabetes.

This is no longer only happening in high income countries. Four out of fi ve chronic disease deaths today are in low and middle income countries. Costly chronic care needs are growing and exerting considerable demand on health systems. Chronic diseases and conditions are on the rise worldwide.

An ageing population and changes in societal behaviour are contributing to a steady increase in these common and costly long-term health problems. Read our full-page insert in the Globe and Mail on seniors home health care.

Healthy aging is an integral part of healthy living and has a significant impact on population health. As one ages, factors that affect health include economic status, availability of health-care and community services, and infrastructure such as transportation and appropriate housing.

Chronic diseases - such as heart disease, cancer, diabetes, stroke, and arthritis - are the leading causes of disability and death in New York State and throughout the United States.

The Chronic Disease Prevention Program is an integral part of the Wisconsin Department of Health Services, Division of Public Health, Bureau of Community Health Promotion.

We are also supported by cooperative agreements from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. General information on long-term conditions is available on the Healthcare Improvement Scotland website.
