Active Ageing: A Policy Framework

Page history last edited by Ciarán Holahan 14 years, 7 months ago

"Active Ageing" is the WHO's contribution to the Second United Nations World Assembly on Ageing in 2002.  It celebrates the triumph of an ageing population; describes the concept of "active ageing" and outlines its determinants; addresses the challenges of an ageing population; and puts forward a policy response based on the three pillars of health, participation and security.  The document states that:


"It is time for a new paradigm, one that views older people as active participants in an age-integrated society and as active contributors as well as beneficiaries of development."
