IFA's 11th Global Conference on Ageing
28 May-  1June 2012 -  Prague, Czech Republic

Prague is Europe's seventh most visited city, famous for its Charles Bridge, Bohemian charm and home of legendary Franz Kafka. It will also be where the IFA's next global conference will be hosted.
In partnership with Zivot 90, we are pleased to announce our 11th Global Conference, titled "Ageing Connects". The Conference will provide a multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary forum for networking and the sharing of information related to new research and evidence-based programmes and policies. It is an opportunity for those interested in the field of ageing and the evolution of the human spirit to take stock of social trends, evaluate recent policy developments and collectively chart a course. Together we must facilitate stronger linkages among research, policy and practice and explore in greater depth the role of civil society in building effective relationships.

For more information, visit the official website of the Conference.

Over the past century, humanity has been adding years to life. World Health Day 2012 focuses on how good health can add life to years, enabling older men and women to not only live longer, but also to extend their active involvement in all levels of society.
The experience of ageing in the 21st century will be very different from that in the last century. We need to reinvent ageing. On the World Health Day, WHO invites you to think about the sort of society we want to create and consider the policies and action we need to put in place to anticipate and respond to population ageing, with health at the core.

For more information about the World Health Day, visit the website of the World Health Organization.
Next Monday be part of our World Health Day Chat around "Healthy Ageing"! Join us on our Twitter Discussion and share your ideas!
