Workshop discussion links

To guide the afternoon workshop discussions, we suggest you review the WHO's World Report on Ageing and Health, which recommends profound changes in the way health policies for aging populations are formulated and services are provided.

The WHO also developed the Global Strategy and Action Plan on Ageing and Health, which was adopted by the World Health Assembly in 2016.
