WHO Requests Public Feedback on Global Strategy and Action Plan on Ageing

The World Health Organization (WHO) is requesting public consultation on Draft zero of the “Global Strategy and Action Plan on Ageing and Health”. The consultation seeks feedback from individuals and institutions with an interest in fostering healthy and active ageing worldwide.

Input from this effort will be used towards the development of Draft 1 “Global Strategy and Action Plan” agreement.  The aim of the consultation is to gain insight and recommendations on 5 strategic objectives:

  1. Commitment to foster healthy ageing in every country.

  2. Aligning health systems to the neees of older populations

  3. Developing long-term care systems

  4. Creating age-friendly environments

  5. Improving measuring, monitoring and understanding

Contributors can provide comment on all 5 strategic objectives or only the one(s) of personal/professional interest. The comments will be used towards developing Draft 1 of the agreement, which will be discussed in Geneva on 29-30 October 2015.

The consultation period is open from 28 August through 30 October 2015.
