The Republic of Moldova is a former Soviet republic, situated between Romania and the Ukraine. Compared to other post-communist countries in transition, its people have suffered considerably more poverty than other Eastern European countries. This is largely due to constant political instability in the past decade, territorial separatism, corruption and increasing criminalization. The economic crisis, followed by the country's instability, led to the

permanent under-funding of the health system and a serious decline in living standards and public health and a growing increase in the mortality rate. The average worker has a monthly salary of about 100 EUR. The average pensioner receives about 25 EUR a month.Moldova is so close to Western Europe, yet the country is painfully poor. Due to lack of work or very low incomes, reduced access to medical services and the lack of any means to improve their conditions, people have increasingly suffered and their living conditions have severely decreased. These problems even more seriously affect the elderly who, together with the children, are the largest vulnerable group in Moldavian societyElderly people often live in deplorable conditions, not having enough food, having no access to drinking water and proper hygiene. The situation is worse for the elderly, and especially those elderly who are disabled.
In the past decade life expectancy has dropped by 5 years (the average life expectancy of a man is about 59 and a woman 69) while in Western Europe men live to the average age of 79.
