This article analyzes age-related risk factors that affect the population health. Risk factors that contribute to poor health are those that increase the likelihood of getting sick or injured. Risk factors are often presented individually, but it is confirmed that they are often interrelated in practice. For example, physical inactivity will lead to weight gain, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol over time. Together, they significantly increase the chance of developing chronic heart and other diseases, and the older a person is, the more various factors impact his health. The study aims to identify age-related risk factors affecting the morbidity of the population. The research was carried out using theoretical methods: the study of scientific articles, literature on the topic, and practical methods: observation and generalization. As a result, it was revealed what risk factors affect the population’s morbidity, the form and degree of their influence on humans, and methods for reducing the influence of these factors were proposed.
