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.
