Author(s): Rubi Anjum and Aisha Siddiqui
Abstract: The elderly population is large over-all and growing due to advancement of health care education. A report released by the United Nations Population Fund and Help Age India submits that India had 90 million elderly persons (8%) in 2011. The health issues of the elderly/ aged people are not only confined to a set of diseases; but they also include functional incapacitation due to changes in human organs. Unlike other developed nations, In India, there is no well-structured health care service available for elderly peoples, and due to lack of this kind of services and for the up gradation of health of these elderly peoples, urgent actions are required. So, we can begin with integrating indigenous systems of health care like Unani medicine with the existing health care structures for this purpose. And the present manuscript is an effort to enlighten the role of Unani system of medicine for prevention of diseases and promotion of health along with management of diseases in elderly peoples.
