Committed To Becoming More Age-Friendly
International Federation on Ageing International
The International Federation on Ageing (IFA) is a point of global connection of experts and expertise in the field of ageing and achieves this through the development of national, regional and international information platforms that help to influence and shape effective age-related policy. IFA was a leading member of the civil society movement that championed the United Nations Principles for Older People in 1999 that underpins many national and regional strategic plans, and now chairs the Global Alliance for the Rights of Older People.
Through its growing global reach via a large membership base and governmental network the IFA is uniquely placed to view the social and economic consequences of population ageing in the context of both its opportunities and challenges including financial protection, healthy ageing, age-friendly cities, health and social system change, labour market forces and the care continuum.
The IFA has been a proud supporter of the age-friendly programme since its inception and is now partnering with WHO to lend its unique expertise in order to help ensure that Age Friendly World is an all-encompassing resource for all things related to age-friendliness and a useful community to connect all those across the world undertaking age-friendly initiatives.
