GAROP joins thousands of delegates from around to world in this in-person and virtual global conference on ageing.  We can come together as a global community to inspire, enquire, learn and advocate for policies and practices that create an environment that will enable older people to do what they have reason to value. Action areas of the Decade of Healthy Ageing form the structural pillars of this conference: ageism, age-friendly cities and communities, primary health care, and long-term care.  No conference on ageing can be without the theme of older people and pandemics which has fundamentally impacted the current and future generations on older people.

The International Federation of Ageing (IFA) is convening the 15th conference with the theme “Rights Matter”.
