The IFA 14th Global Conference on Ageing is being convened at the Chelsea Hotel and Ryerson University in the IFA’s 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.
