Other Language Versions
The framework of healthy aging has created a structure for research across the United Nations Decade of Healthy Aging (2021-2030) and for action to address the mission of the Sustain-able Development Goals “to leave no one behind”. Across the decade, researchers, governments and civil society are urged to develop strategies to identify and address inequities and to foster healthy aging. This agenda requires coordinated effort from researchers in Gerontology and Geriatrics to address the broad set of social and health issues in aging including functional status, social participation, and older adults’ needs in the context of social and health care systems.
