Healthy ageing is influenced by a variety of interacting determinants. Because no one agency can tackle all these determinants, the promotion of healthy ageing requires an intersectoral approach. The aim of this article is to describe a theoretical basis, the development and possible applications of a framework within a municipality in the Netherlands. This framework supports intersectoral collaboration by guiding and stimulating the development, implementation and evaluation of health promotion activities for healthy ageing. It is based on the principles of health promotion and on the theory of salutogenesis and built upon three interrelated central concepts: (1) sense of coherence, (2) resources for health, and (3) health. The framework visualises the interrelationships of the three concepts within health promotion and salutogenesis. This visualisation makes explicit the value and the contribution with respect to content of intersectoral collaboration and the participation of older people in health promotion. The relationships between the concepts of the framework also indicate the need to undertake different types of research and gather different kinds of data to develop, implement and evaluate healthy ageing strategies.
