The population of senior citizens in India is nearly 106 million. To take care of their special aspects of diagnosis & treatment, the medical community is gearing up. Geriatric Society of India (GSI) has been a crusader in this field for last four decades. A text book on Geriatrics & Gerontology (Geriatric Care) was brought out covering the medical and health aspects of Indian elderly in 98 chapters spread over in 786 A4 size pages in 1999. The revised editions were brought out in 2004, 2008 & 2015. Indian Recommendations for Vaccination in Older Adults were made in 2008, 2012, 2014 & 2015. The last two successive five-year plans have given due attention to Geriatrics & Medical Council of India has also come forward for its teaching in medical colleges. GSI has launched a peer review journal (3 issues in a year) in 2011, containing original & review articles, drug review, management tips etc. I would request you to circulate this information to all the relevant people, contribute articles and make it available for teachers as well as students.
