Highlights: By 2024, there will be more people under the age of 65 in Europe than under 15. On a global scale, this is expected to occur around 2064, according to current projections. The World Health Organization is calling for better measures for healthy old age. A balanced diet and physical activity of at least 150 minutes per week are highlighted. Even more intense physical activity can reduce the risk of all-cause mortality by 35%, the WHO says. The European branch of the WHO brings together 53 countries, some of which are located in Central Asia.

We are living longer and longer, and this has consequences. By 2024, there will be more people over 65 than under 15 in Europe, the World Health Organization (WHO) warned on Wednesday, calling for better measures for healthy old age. "By 2024, it is estimated that the population of people aged over 65 will outnumber that of people under 15 in the WHO European Region," WHO said in a statement.

On a global scale, this upheaval is expected to occur around 2064, according to projections by the Our World in Data Institute. "This trend is synonymous with new social, economic and health challenges," noted the European branch of the health organization, which brings together 53 countries, some of which are located in Central Asia.

Balanced diet and recommended sports activities

Across the Old Continent, longer life expectancy is often synonymous with failing health. To mitigate the impact of population ageing, the WHO calls on the authorities to take action to "enable older persons to maintain and improve their physical and mental health, independence, social well-being and quality of life".

Among the recommended measures, a balanced diet and the practice of physical activity of at least 150 minutes per week are highlighted. "Even more intense physical activity can reduce the risk of all-cause mortality by 35%," the WHO said.
