Social inequalities in ageing. Copenhagen Life Course Epidemiology in Aging Research (CLEAR)

Our purpose is to study social inequalities in health and aging in a life course perspective, and to explore the pathways through and interactions with psychosocial, psychological and biological factors. We want to inform policy makers on intervention possibilities aiming at reducing social inequality in health among middle-aged and older adults.

To inform intervention strategies a better understanding of life course social determinants of aging as well as their interplay with psychological, behavioural and biological factors is of huge importance in today’s aging society. Knowledge about risk factors and development of interventions in the most vulnerable older citizens will add important new knowledge to this area.
