2021-2030 was recently formally declared as the UN Decade of Healthy Ageing at the UN General Assembly. The Decade of Healthy Ageing aims to bring together governments, civil society, international agencies, professionals, academia, the media, and the private sector to jointly take action in order to improve the lives of older people, their families, and the communities in which they live.
The Cochrane-Campbell Global Ageing Partnership has been working with the World Health Organization (WHO) since 2015, and has actively supported preparations for the Decade. This includes co-authoring the WHO Decade of Healthy Ageing Baseline Report, which sets the stage for the Decade. The report was published today, 17 December, and references 13 Cochrane Reviews. Prof Tracey Howe, Director of the Cochrane Campbell Global Ageing Partnership, attended and spoke at the launch, alongside WHO leadership, policymakers and civil society representatives from around the world.
Special issue of the Cochrane Library App
To tie in with the launch of the WHO Decade of Healthy Ageing Baseline Report, we have also launched a healthy ageing-focused issue of the Cochrane Library App.
The Cochrane Library app presents the latest up-to-date evidence from the Cochrane Library in a convenient, easy to navigate format which provides you with relevant, accessible research, when you need it, from the world’s leading experts in evidence-informed health care.
All content is free and new issues will download regularly.
