WHO World Report on Ageing and Health
"In my view, the World Report on Ageing and Health has the potential to transform the way policy-makers and service-providers perceive population ageing and plan to make the most of it" - Dr. Margaret Chan, Director-General, WHO
On 30 September 2015, the World Health Organization (WHO) launched the World Report on Ageing and Health.
For the first time, evidence on a global basis has been comprehensively and carefully analyzed to inform a new paradigm on Healthy Ageing, where a person is not defined nor stereotyped by a specific level of functioning or health.
The IFA urges all stakeholders, across sectors and across disciplines, to stand behind this ground breaking report and help connect and create networks to drive innovation and change toward sustainable and purposeful outcomes for future generations. The underlying principles of human rights, equity and non-discrimination and social cohesion between generations are the foundation stones for the future WHO Global Strategy and Action Plan on Ageing and Health.
