Abstract

Elderly people are a rapidly growing segment of the population in both developed and developing countries. This rapid increase is one of the actual demographic trends (1). At the beginning of this century, 4 of 10 people in France were aged &gt: 65 y. Today, it is estimated that 4 in 5 of the population will be elderly in the year 2000. Then, people &gt: 60 y will represent 26.8% of the French population (2). Thus, the maintenance of health with age appears to be one of the main public health challenge for the next 20 years.
