Abstract
There is an undeniable need for global health practice to involve states and citizens on different levels of collaboration for health improvement and promotion. Old people in low and middle income countries suffer from poor social and health conditions; poverty crisis and widening health inequalities worsens these already dire circumstances. Analysis on the effectiveness of neoliberal activities spearheaded by high income western countries through transnational companies, organizations and government policies in influencing changes in economic structures of low and middle income countries was done. Poverty and the environment are chiefly important to the conditions of older people and the relevance of the roles of an effective state and active citizens in improving health conditions in the current social trend called globalization cannot be overemphasized.
