Though considerable attention has been paid to the ageing populations around the world, the vast majority of this attention has been focused on higher income countries. Therefore the WHO initiated the Study on Global Ageing and Adult Health (SAGE) in six low- and middle-income countries. The aim was to improve understanding of the health and well-being of adults aged 50 years or older in these countries. The study provides information on a wide range of population health, wealth and related indicators.

The resulting evidence will be used to inform policy and planning in the country.
