Québec’s Ministry of Health and Social Services, the World Health Organization (WHO), France’s Ministère des Solidarités et de la Santé, and Québec’s Ministry of International Relations and la Francophonie held an International Technical Meeting on Aging in Place from October 23 to 25, 2018 in Québec City, Canada.
This meeting brought together nearly 100 participants representing 15 countries and international organizations. The technical meeting fostered dialogue, thought, and discussion on developments, issues, challenges, and possible solutions on ageing in place. Discussions focused on four main themes:
- Taking Action on Policies
- Taking Action on the Environment
- Taking Action with the Person
- The Person and Their Actions
The three days of discussions yielded 17 technical recommendations that can support policymakers in making decisions on ageing in place.
This event was financially supported by the Public Health Agency of Canada, the Consulate General of France in Québec, the Government of Quebec, Grantmakers in Aging, the Institute of Aging of the Canadian Institutes of Health Research, and the Québec Network for Research on Aging.
