Healthy Ageing


WHO - Ageism

The Global Report on Ageism by the World Health Organisation outlines a framework for action to reduce ageism including specific recommendations for government, UN agencies, civil society organisations, and private sector.

It brings together the best available evidence on the nature and magnitude of ageism, its determinants and its impact.

The report outlines:

  • what strategies work to prevent and counter ageism,
  • identifies gaps, and
  • proposes future lines of research to improve understanding of ageism.
