Learn more about countries' experiences in implementing integrated care for older people at an upcoming WHO report launch

DATE: 25 April 2022 (Monday)
TIME: 13:00 - 14:30 CEST - find my timezone
What would our world look like if we all had access to good quality, affordable healthcare that fully responded to our needs – no matter what our age? To help achieve this vision we need person-centred, integrated care: one of the four action areas of the UN Decade of Healthy Ageing.

Learn more about how health and social care systems around the world can adapt to provide integrated care for current and future generations of older people at the launch of a WHO report on the Integrated Care for Older People implementation pilot programme.

The launch will be held online via Zoom, and requires pre-registration. Live interpretation will be available in French.
