Population aging is one of the demographic challenges the Latin American region is facing, and which, in turn, transforms the health profiles of the populations. The syndemic concept integrates the social-biological-environmental, referring to synergistic and situated health problems; pertinent approach to the study of comorbidities and multimorbidities that affect 24% of older people (OP). In this sense, health and care crises are identified as major interconnected problems that define societies and make visible the living conditions of PMs. In old age, health, nutrition, and care practices are a central category for understanding aging modalities. It is proposed to build health-food-care (HFC) profiles of Argentine OP, according to a quality of life index (LI) designed for this purpose (provincial aggregation level, 2019-2022). An ecological and cross-sectional epidemiological study was developed, illustrating the distribution of HFC profiles and LI at the provincial level from secondary sources of national scope. In Argentina, various health-nutrition-care profiles coexist among PM according to province of residence, which are related to LI. At the same time, the illustration of a map of the state of PM's health situation makes it possible to give visibility to groups and contexts with distinctive characteristics - pointing out differences and similarities - between the provinces. In order to make a contribution to the elaboration of situated public policies, this work recognizes expressions of multiple modalities of aging according to different ways of living old age and their contexts.
