Virtual Issue: Geriatric Program Development
Adults aged 65 and older are the fastest growing age group in the world. In the Asia-Pacific region alone, the number of adults over the age of 60 is expected to triple to more than 1.2 billion by 2050, or one in four adults over age 60. In China, people over 60 account for 13.3 percent of the country’s population of 1.34 billion. Given the explosion in the number of older adults, the American Geriatrics Society (AGS) is working to increase both the number of geriatrics specialists as well as the geriatrics knowledge of all health professionals so they are competent to care for older adults. The AGS is pleased to publish this virtual collection of articles from the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society (JAGS), with a focus on the development of geriatrics training programs around the world.
JAGS, which was ranked among the 100 most influential journals in the last century by Biomedical and Life Sciences Division of the Special Libraries Association, is the premier journal focused on clinical geriatrics. Reaching an international audience, JAGS publishes papers by internationally recognized experts in geriatrics from around the world.
The twelve papers in this virtual issue of JAGS focus on the aging population and the development of geriatrics training programs from a variety of countries, including China, Europe, Singapore, Canada and the United States.
