With the object of summarizing the available knowledge about the health and well-being of older persons in the Region of the Americas at the start of the Decade on Healthy Aging 2021‑2030 and reporting on population aging, this publication provides current information on the demographic outlook in the Region. The data paint a detailed picture of the effects of the demographic transition, major trends, and population profiles, taking into account the results of the COVID-19 pandemic. Rapid population aging in Latin America and the Caribbean is shaping the capacity of countries and health systems to meet the specific demands of their populations and will continue to do so. Therefore, in order to design inclusive and sustainable systems, we must have current information to facilitate decision-making. This publication facilitates priority setting at the regional, national, and local levels, and provides reliable, evidence-based data and information to guide the adoption of effective measures, facilitate monitoring, and promote evidence‑based public health policies.
