Aims of the Global Strategy
The purpose of the strategy and action plan is to define the goals, strategies, and activities that WHO (its Member States and secretariat) will pursue, and to clearly lay these out as a global framework for public health action. Contributions from non-state actors, including civil society and older adults themselves, and other global and regional entities, are also necessary, if action on ageing and health is to be successful.
Consultation period: 28 August – 30 October 2015
