“Aging well” must be a global priority - 6 November 2014 -

A major new Series on health and aging, published in “The Lancet”, warns that unless health systems find effective strategies to address the problems faced by an aging world population, the growing burden of chronic disease will greatly affect the quality of life of older people. As people across the world live longer, soaring levels of chronic illness and diminished well being are poised to become a major global public health challenge.

Why an Age-Friendly Community?
It’s no secret that the population is aging and each of us hopes that our aging experience is a positive one. Successful, healthy and active aging requires a combination of personal and environmental factors that work together to support the best possible experience.

Age-friendly City Project Update: The Age-friendly City Project continues to involve older people throughout the Age-friendly cities cycle and is building partnerships in the community. s©.

A Challenge and an Opportunity: A common view of population aging is that it will place an unprecedented demand on social and health care systems that will need to be paid for by a falling number of working age people. This would place a significant brake on the economic development of all countries. The Age-friendly Environments Program is an international effort by WHO to address the environmental and social factors that contribute to active and healthy aging in societies.
