WHO Decade of Healthy Ageing Consultation
WHO Decade of Healthy Ageing Consultation @ Online
Sep 8 all-day
In 2016, 194 Countries adopted, at the World Health Assembly, a Global strategy and action plan on ageing and health (2016–2030). Informed by the evidence in the World report on ageing and health (2015) and aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals, the Strategy called for transformative change. Member States envisioned that change to be a world where people can live long and healthy lives. Governments realised that to achieve impact in countries we need a decade of concerted action on Healthy Ageing. For WHO, Healthy Ageing is defined as the process of developing and maintaining the functional ability that enables well-being in older age. Between 9 July and 8 September 2019, WHO and partners are seeking open input, comments, revisions, additions on the zero-draft proposal for the Decade of Healthy Ageing.
