Ageism & Societal Response to Population Ageing - Ageing Women

Global reach of ageism on older persons’ health: A systematic review

FULL STUDY - https://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0220857 – January 15, 2020

Conclusions: The current analysis which included over 7 million participants is the most comprehensive review of health consequences of ageism to date. Considering that the analysis revealed that the detrimental impact of ageism on older persons’ health has been occurring simultaneously at the structural and individual level in five continents, our systematic review demonstrates the pernicious reach of ageism. Initiatives to improve population health would benefit from taking ageism into account. By including all regions, languages, and health outcomes, our review included the most studies to date of the consequences of ageism. Accordingly, this review allows clinicians and policy makers to evaluate the consequences of ageism beyond national and regional borders and across time.

Alibay, who grew up in Joliette, Quebec, first became interested in space when she saw the movie “Apollo 13” at the age of 10.

“I got so worried watching the movie that my parents fast forwarded all the way to the end to show me that the astronauts had survived,” she told HuffPost Quebec. “Afterward, we watched the rest of the movie. It really fascinated me to see the engineers working together, even though they were all men.”

“My brother, who had always loved space, lost all interest in it once the movie was over,” she said. “From then on, I was the space lover.”
