Madrid Age-Friendly City Diagnosis

The aim of this document is to investigate the degree to which Madrid is an age-friendly city and understand which actions increase the physical, social and mental well-being of older people and their security and full participation in community activities.

This diagnosis, with the corresponding suggestions for improvement, forms a part of the initiatives outlined by the WHO to form a part of the Global Network of Age-friendly Cities, membership of which was requested by Madrid City Council in March 2013.
