Webinar Announcement: What is the role for public policy and technology in increasing immunisation uptake across the life course?
What is the role for public policy and technology in increasing immunisation uptake across the life course? is the fourth webinar of the International Federation on Ageing (IFA) Post-Conference Education Webinar Series and throughout the interactive presentation will discuss the adult vaccination work of governments and NGOs, as well as the use of technology in promoting or hindering uptake rates of adult vaccination.
This webinar is a part of the series’ second learning program: Enabling Functional Ability. With a growing population of older people across the globe, it is now more than ever critical to determine ways to maintain and improve the functional ability of this cohort, as well as ensure these issues are addressed in both policy and practice.

With a rapidly ageing global population, addressing inequalities and harnessing the opportunities that older people experience is of great importance. In August 2018, the International Federation on Ageing (IFA) hosted the 14th Global Conference on Ageing in Toronto, Canada, with 1200 experts gathering from around the world. The theme of this conference was Towards a Decade of Healthy Ageing – From Evidence to Action and the IFA is compelled to mobilize the knowledge and learning from this conference with its members and beyond. To ensure that evidence continues to be translated following the conference, the IFA is hosting a Post-Conference Education Webinar Series to mobilize conference themes and presentations to a larger audience.
Please contact Ms Hannah Girdler to be placed on the mailing list for further updates regarding the Post-Conference Webinar Series.
