65. Vejez, sociedad y salud pública (Old age, society and public health)

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a profound impact on older people, particularly those residing in elderly care facilities. In addition, they have endured the adverse consequences of various measures implemented to prevent and control the spread of the virus.


This situation serves as a stimulus for profound reflection on the role of the aged in society, the values that encompass their existence, and the imperative to address the challenges arising from physical frailty, unwanted loneliness, and social exclusion.
