The Middle Eastern and Muslim populations live with life expectancy, retirement, and cultural values different from many other parts of the world. The areas containing these populations range from areas of considerable wealth [United Arab Emirates] to considerable poverty [Yemen] . Many live in Europe or other western countries with differing health care systems.The purpose of the proposed special issue is to examine issues related to aging and its associated problems relevant to health care, public health, health policy, and healthcare management of Middle Eastern and Muslim populations. This issue is open, but not limited, to theoretical and empirical papers in international health, nursing homes, health disparities for the elderly, and the financing of health services for the populations and countries mentioned.
