Addressing Age and Ageing

It's International Day of Older Persons today, and this year marks the 30th anniversary of the observance. As the world reckons with the disproportionate and severe impact that the COVID-19 pandemic has wrought on older persons, the theme for this year, perhaps unsurprisingly, is “Pandemics: Do They Change How We Address Age and Ageing?” We'll look at the adverse effects of paying too little attention to ensuring healthy ageing.
