2017-03-14_1525Towards a Decade of Healthy Ageing – From Evidence to Action

The IFA 14th Global Conference on Ageing is being hosted at Ryerson University in our home city of Toronto, Ontario on 8–10 August 2018. The conference will revolve around four key themes related to the field of ageing, and will feature prominent experts presenting and discussing critical issues. The conference is proud to be supported by an international network of partners.

The title of IFA’s 14th Global Conference, “Towards a Decade of Healthy Ageing – From Evidence to Action,” is in response to the World Health Organization (WHO) Global Report on Ageing and Health and the subsequent goals of the WHO Global Strategy and Action Plan (2016).

Specifically, the Global Strategy focuses on five strategic objectives: commitment to action on healthy ageing in every country; developing age-friendly environments; aligning health systems to the needs of older populations; developing sustainable and equitable systems for providing long-term care (home, communities, institutions); and improving measurement, monitoring and research on Healthy Ageing.

The Global Strategy and Action Plan is a significant and much needed step forward in establishing a framework for Member States. The IFA, in its formal relations with the WHO, is strongly committed, through the platform of our Global Conference and attending delegates, to contributing to the evidence and partnerships necessary to support a Decade of Healthy Ageing from 2020 to 2030.

The IFA is committed to helping enable older people to do what they value through a deeper evidence-based understanding and has aligned the IFA Global Conference’s themes to the WHO’s Strategy with links to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
