Notes that changing nature of disease risks and functional health status with aging suggests need to focus health promotion efforts in older population where they will reduce morbidity, mortality, and disability. Sees little consensus in literature regarding efficacy of various health promotion practices and appropriate target groups within older population. Calls for careful research and application of findings. (Author/NB)
