Health and ageing economics

According to the UN Sustainable Development Knowledge Platform, “Sustainable Development Goal 3 of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is devoted to ‘ensure healthy lives and promoting well-being for all at all age.’ The Agenda recognizes that health and development are intimately interconnected, and call that action items must address the primary health needs of the world's population, since they are integral to the achievement of the goals of sustainable development and primary environmental care.”

In Elsevier, we want to showcase the research done in this important field of investigation and bring to readers and researchers the best available articles on three of the top Elsevier journals focusing on health and ageing economics: Journal of Health Economics, Journal of the Economics of Ageing, Economics & Human Biology.
