WHO Global Forum on Innovations for Ageing Populations

World Health Organization, 2013

In 2013, the World Health Organization (WHO) established the Global Forum on Innovation for Ageing Populations as an information exchange platform for diverse stakeholders to address the challenge of meeting the needs of older people in low resource settings with frugal innovations. The Global Forum brought together more than 170 expert participants from 21 countries for 3 days of rich discussion and debate, in order to meet the following objectives:

  • Exchange information, views and lessons from key operations and health systems research concerning technological and social innovations for ageing populations;
  • Highlight findings and solutions through specific examples of successful, scaled-up innovations;
  • Identify key future priorities for WHO and its partners in support of innovations for ageing populations.
