The number of the Malaysian elderly population over 60 years old is projected to increase from 2 million in 2010 (7% of total population) to 3.4 million (11%) by 2020. By 2050, it is projected that Malaysia will have an elderly population of at least 9 million, which accounts for 22% of the total population. The triumph of modern society is moving way too fast for the present ageing population, and leaving them adrift in the social, economic and environmental progress. This impact can easily undermine their ability to continue being productive citizens – be it for themselves, their families or the nation.  More Info
