Ageing and sexual health. Entre Nous No. 77, 2013




Accelerated population ageing is now observed in countries around the world; globally the proportion of people aged 65 and older is forecast to almost double between 2010 and 2050. With this in mind, the articles in this 77th edition of Entre Nous address a broad spectrum of aspects of ageing and sexual health, from specific medical challenges to wider social trends that recognize that sexuality and sexual health are an intrinsic part of health and wellbeing in older age. The perspectives reflected in the content highlight how gains in life span can be transformed into increasing health and wellbeing, including sexual health, in older age groups, that touch upon the most intimate aspects of healthy ageing.
