National policy experts call for bold action for healthy ageing in the Region

National policy experts on healthy ageing have called for bold action to promote healthy ageing and to invest in a future where all older people have the freedom to live an active and healthy life that allows them to continue doing what they value. The call was made during a meeting held on 26–27 February 2019 in Moscow, Russian Federation, where participants from more than 30 countries of the WHO European Region came together to take stock of the policies and strategies across the Region.

WHO supports countries in leading the way towards a world for all ages. In the next 10 years, healthy ageing will be high on the global health agenda, with plans to launch a Decade of Healthy Ageing from 2020 to 2030.
