16th International Federation on Ageing

The 16th Global Conference on Ageing is set against the backdrop of important international agendas that align and intersect with the UN Decade of Healthy Ageing.  The launch of the Decade prompted the IFA to publically pledge to view all work streams through the lens of the four action areas – combatting ageism, integrated care, long term care and age-friendly environments.  Unlike previous conference we are boldly focusing only on five themes – digital technologies, older women, maintaining and improving function, immunisation, and age-friendly environments which will be seen the lens of both the actions areas and enablers.
