Health plays an important role in achieving a good quality of life. In the current aging society, people are living longer worldwide. The proportion of the world's population over 60 years of age will increase from 12% to 22% between 2015 and 2050. Healthy living and aging are not only expected but are also a common goal of health professionals.
Health assessment is the evaluation of physical or mental health status, and is used for early detection of diseases in people that may look and feel well. Comprehensive and efficient health-assessment tools or approaches can help to accurately understand health status for prevention or timely treatment/intervention of diseases.
Health interventions are programs or services delivered or undertaken primarily to treat disease or to maintain or restore functional ability. This is determined not only by the intervention itself, but also by the medical condition and patients’ health expectations. The methods or approaches of health assessment and interventions may vary for different populations, types of diseases, cultures, races, etc.
Papers of a high academic standard that address the current state of knowledge and evidence on health assessment and intervention methods of human health are welcome for this Special Issue.
