More about the The Healthy Ageing 50: Government, civil society, industry and academic leaders transforming the world to be a better place in which to grow older.

The UN Decade of Healthy Ageing (2021-2030) is an opportunity to work together to improve the lives of older people, their families, and the communities in which they live. As the Madrid International Plan of Action on Ageing approaches its 20-year milestone, there is an opportunity to generate renewed momentum for action.

The Decade sets an ambitious vision, but leaders all over the globe are already working to transform the world to be a better place to grow older. Across governments, civil society, academia, business, media, and local communities, these leaders are trailblazers in what they do and how to do it.

The Healthy Ageing 50 recognises their contributions and showcases their work as inspirational exemplars of what individuals are already doing to make the UN Decade of Healthy Ageing’s goals a reality.
