The Global Ageing Network is comprised of organizations and individuals committed to enhancing quality of life for the world’s elders. Our network ensures that our value of “creating community across borders” is realized. All members of our community are vital to the sucess of the Global Ageing Network vision and mission.


The Global Ageing Network consists of Chapters, Provider & Associate Members, Global Research Partners, Sponsors and IAHSA Supporters. Learn more about each component of our membership below.

IAHSA is a Global Network of ageing service providers. The core of our membership is composed of IAHSA Chapters which are national or regional membership associations who represent their members in their particular country.

Chapters are the embodiment of the our value ‘Creating Community Across Borders’. Key individuals within each chapter provide leadership to IAHSA as it develops its strategic direction and initiatives. Chapters are also vital to the success of our research projects.

Our regional chapters include LeadingAge (USA), EAHSA (Europe) and IAHSA China. Click our chapter member logos to learn more.







Members participating in IAHSA through a Chapter are able to enjoy the programs and services of the Global Ageing Network at reduced rates. For more information on how to become a Chapter please contact us.

Individuals and organisations unaffiliated with our regional chapters have an opportunity to join our network directly through two membership categories.

As a not-for-profit organisation, IAHSA works tirelessly to share information, build knowledge and drive excellence in ageing services.
