BACKGROUND

Asia has 549 million people aged 60 years or over in 2017, home to 57% of the global older population and is projected to rise to 61% in 2050 according to the United Nations Population Division. In Singapore alone, its resident population has grown older, with the proportion of residents aged 65 years and over increasing from 8.5% in 2007 to 13.0% in 2017.

A better understanding of the changing relationship between health and aging is crucial to prepare for the inevitable greying population phenomenon. The role of nutrition is especially critical to improve the quality of life for the elderly population. As such, ILSI SEA Region is organizing a Mini-Symposium on The Role of Nutrition in Healthy Aging to understand the nutritional needs, impact of nutrition on muscle health, and health indicators for the elderly in the region.
