  3. Abstract:
    Abstract:\r\n\r\n Unprecedented demographic changes announced in the twentieth century\r\n\r\n and continues to rise in this century, are about to change profoundly the world.\r\n\r\n Extending life expectancy and falling birth rates are about to undertake major\r\n\r\n structural changes in all human societies - such as the historical phenomenon of\r\n\r\n inversion in the proportion of young people and older people. Aging her profound\r\n\r\n and lasting consequences for all countries is a phenomenon of great importance\r\n\r\n and also a challenge still inexperienced.\r\n\r\n This phenomenon shows that: population ageing is unprecedented, without\r\n\r\n parallel in human history and the twenty-first century will witness even more rapid\r\n\r\n ageing than did the century just past; population ageing is pervasive, a global\r\n\r\n phenomenon affecting every man, woman and child but countries are at very\r\n\r\n different stages of the process, and the pace of change differs greatly; countries\r\n\r\n that started the process later will have less time to adjust; population ageing is\r\n\r\n enduring: we will not return to the young populations that our ancestors knew;\r\n\r\n population ageing has profound implications for many facets of human life.\r\n
