Scientists have named Switzerland the best country for older people
Switzerland was the most favourable country for the elderly people where they receive maximum care And attention, close it behind Norway And Sweden, according to English scientists, trained in the quality of life of older people on Earth.

"Our index is the first step Towards the full realization of the potential for each person at each stage of his life. Today the proportion of older persons is increasing in all countries of the world. By 2050, 46 of 96 States in our index will be thirty percent is inhabited by people whose age exceeds 60 years. And we have only 35 years to prepare For this future, " said Toby porter (Toby Porter) out of HelpAge international, which sponsored this research.

Porter And his colleagues at Southampton University (UK) conducted by the world census among the older citizens of the Earth, revealed their concerns And describe the advantages And flaws of each state for people aged by examining the statistics provided by the UN in the framework of proposals for the elaboration of the plan of action for the sustainable development of the planet.

The main conclusion of the authors of this report, in addition to choosing the top 10, was the discovery that the gap in life expectancy between the most comfortable And uncomfortable for older people States is growing - he was only 5 and 7 in 1990, 7, 3 years in 2012. Usually, senior citizens in the States of the top ten live about 26 years after retirement, while in Afghanistan And other countries at the bottom of the rating of this indicator does not exceed 16 years.

in the top 10, except Switzerland And Scandinavian, also includes a number of European countries, USA, Japan And Canada. Russia is in this chart 65 line, Ukraine - 73, and above all from countries of the former USSR in it resettles Estonia (23) And Georgia (29). Table covers Afghanistan, And close To it resettles Palestine, Pakistan, Mozambique And several African States.

Unexpectedly low position of Russia, As scientists say, due to the current economic situation, rising prices of food And the lack of a national policy for the battle with the consequences of an increase in the number of older people in the population of the state, as well as low quality performance of the health system.

Another unusual result 60th place South Korea - due to the fact that the majority of older people within the developed Asian countries live in extreme poverty. By results of examination the researchers, about 50 percent of retired Koreans is below the poverty line.

As the scientists, the report included only about 50 per cent of the countries of the world, because not all governments of member countries of the UN agreed to provide data on social And economic situation of their older Residents. The authors of the report hope in the future they will be the most inclined To interact.
