A national disease management program (specified health examination and guidance program) that targets lifestyle illnesses and metabolic syndrome will be launched in April 2008. Its stated aim is to contain health care costs while realizing a more vibrant aging society. However, the prevention and guidance measures fail to address healthy longevity in a genuine sense. We review the gerontology literature and propose a quality-of-life approach that considers overall life conditions.
