Portugal had, by 2021, about 4,000 in 100 years, according to data from Pordata, which estimates that in the next thirty years, up to 2050, that number will be may exceed 10 thousand. A situation that, in Manuel Lopes’s view, is very positive because it means we can create conditions for people to reach that age. “We’re an old country, and that’s good,” said a professor at the São João de Deus Nursery School, at the University of Évora, who attended the second podcast Transformar o SNS, which is its theme is, in particular, “Promoting health., life path and aging – the urgency of new answers”. However, the professor is aware of the difficulty in combating the burden of the disease, which is still much higher than 65 years. The solution, he said, is to develop strategies to promote health and disease prevention throughout life, rather than at a more advanced stage. “Investment in these policies has guaranteed results, albeit not in the short term,” he asserted.
