UN International Day of Older Persons

Published Oct 1st 2012

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon said, “Longevity is a public health achievement, not a social or economic liability.

“On this International Day of Older Persons, let us pledge to ensure the well-being of older persons and to enlist their meaningful participation in society so we can all benefit from their knowledge and ability.”

This year’s theme is Longevity: Shaping the Future.  More information is available from the UN here.
