Good practices for a "Decade of Active and Healthy Ageing"
Ageing is a success story of Public Health worldwide, but poses many challenges that hinder its transformation into an opportunity for sustainable development: infectious outbreaks and public health emergencies, chronic diseases, social inequalities, environmental issues and more. Science and technologies provide a bulk of opportunities to implement innovative approaches, but their sustainability relies on our capacity of collaboration.
Sharing a vision is a key step to drive us together into the future.
WHO developed a proposal for "The Decade of Healthy Ageing (2020-2030)", in the effort of bringing together governments, civil society, international agencies, professionals, academia, the media, and the private sector for ten years of concerted, catalytic and collaborative action to improve the lives of older people, their families, and the communities in which they live (https://www.who.int/ageing/decade-of-healthy-ageing).
The proposal calls for concerted global action on Healthy Ageing and leave no one behind.
According to WHO, Healthy Ageing is "the process of developing and maintaining the functional ability that enables wellbeing in older age. Functional ability is about having the capabilities that enable all people to be and do what they have reason to value".
Aim of the present call for papers is to foster the exchange of knowledge on experiences and innovative approaches that can contribute to reduce gaps in active and healthy ageing world wide, with a lifecourse approach.
