Abstract: Considering the gradual process of ageing, the ongoing increase in the level of education, and the outcome that these demographic changes and population health conditions have a considerable effect in governmental "modus operands", we face the following questions: (1) during the 20th century, social and demographic changes influenced Portuguese population health profile? (2) Which importance as been attributed, at governmental level, to health and well-being policies? In this investigation, still in development process, we try to study the links between ageing, education, health and health policies, essentially related to health services. In methodological terms our study is based in national and international literature review, existing legislation and statistical data related to the subject.
