Global Ageing Network launches COVID-19 Report





Global Ageing Network launches COVID-19 Report

We are excited to launch the Global Ageing Network COVID-19 Report. The report is a summary of interviews with providers and others in a dozen countries who have shared their COVID experiences up to the end of 2020. It serves as a chronicle of the 2020 provider experiences, offers lessons and observations for next steps, and exemplifies how providers care for and support older adults build the societies we now enjoy. We are grateful for the support of Standard Wise International to make this possible.

The Global Ageing Network will host a webinar on February 3 at 5:00 pm US EST with the principal investigator, Dr. Emi Kiyota, who will provide an overview of the findings and highlight some key lessons learned.
