This workshop will provide participants with an opportunity to discuss objectives from the World Health Organization’s Global strategy and action plan on ageing and health from a Manitoba context. Workshop participants can sign up to attend sessions in the morning and afternoon. For each topic there will be different activities in the morning and afternoon, so participants could sign up for the same topic for both sessions, if they prefer.

Workshop participants can select from one of the three sessions:

  • Developing age-friendly environments
  • Aligning health systems to the needs of older populations and developing sustainable, and equitable systems for providing long-term care
  • Improving measurement, monitoring and research on Healthy Ageing
