Abstract

Far from being predetermined, the course ageing takes is subject to a variety of influences throughout one's life. This is something that policymakers have so far failed to appreciate, argues Alan Walker. He makes the case for a new strategy which focuses on the whole life course, with the intention of preventing many of the chronic conditions associated with later life.
