In the second phase, the weight and rank of these criteria were calculated and analyzed using Hierarchical Analysis Process. Excel software was used to analyze data.
Findings: The analysis showed that the individual factor is the most important in terms of factors affecting the health of elderly women.

Conclusion: Given the influence of the previous periods of life on healthy elderly, decision-makers should prioritize preventive services in all periods of life regarding age and gender context. Interventions should be presented with an integrated approach with continuous planning at the levels of government, organization and queue, as well as with the participation of both public and private sectors. Existence of information management system, supervision and evaluation, provides the ground for continuous feedback and improvement of programs.
