2012 International Day of Older Persons Programme

2012 celebrates the 10th anniversary of the Second World Assembly on Ageing and the adoption of the Madrid International Plan of Action on Ageing (MIPAA), a blueprint to improve the lives of the world’s rapidly growing ageing population

This International Day of Older Persons will present important new information on the current status of older persons today around the globe, indicating the extent to which their needs are being met by existing policies and programs, where significant gaps continue to negatively affect their lives, and what steps can be taken to promote the continued use of MIPAA to address these gaps.
