Das nationale Gesundheitsziel ‚Gesund älter werden' will zweierlei erreichen: Eine bessere Gesundheitsförderung im Sinne einer Prävention sowie eine bessere Versorgung älterer Menschen im Krankheits- oder Pflegefall. Dazu werden die Handlungsfelder „Prävention und Gesundheitsförderung“; „Gesundheitliche, medizinische und pflegerische Versorgung“ sowie „besondere Herausforderungen“ wie das Thema Demenz und psychische Probleme im Alter aufgegriffen.
