Abstract

Spanish Abstract: Un chileno que nace hoy espera vivir cerca de 80 años.( ) Esta cifra es impactante si la comparamos con los 55 que esperaba vivir uno nacido en 1950. Si bien este aumento substancial en la esperanza de vida es un gran logro, también trae consigo nuevos desafíos, fundamentalmente, garantizar una buena salud para un número creciente de personas que viven más allá de los 65 años.

English Abstract: A Chilean born today can expect to live about 80 years. This figure is striking when compared with the 55 who expect to live one born in 1950. While this substantial increase in life expectancy is a great achievement, it also brings new challenges, mainly to ensure good health for a growing number of people living beyond 65 years.
