About this Research Topic
The purpose of this Research Topic is to showcase the breadth of research related to the health issues associated with population ageing that affect individuals, families, and society in Malaysia.
Research in aging involves inter-disciplinary collaboration that traditionally vary in their measures, methodologies, and processes.

Articles on the following topics will be considered, as well as author proposed topics related (but not exclusive) to the overall theme:
• Health and information system alignment with the needs of older populations;
• Management of measurements, monitoring and understanding for a wide range of issues and challenges related to aging;
• Studies on behavior, environment, health promotion, healthcare, health economy and policy impact;
• Research methods within the social science disciplines of sociology and social psychology which enrich the understanding of aging and illness;
• Use and impact of technology and age-friendly environments for aged care;
• Study on diverse populations (e.g., across the life-course) and settings (e.g., global health, schools, communities).
