Today is National Day and International Elder and for this celebration, the World Health Organization’s annual report (WHO) 2015, was dedicated to World Ageing and Health, noting that definitely aging is entering the public policy agenda.
We are moving forward in our international agenda, and it is pass firsthand these achievements to the partners with whom we are working, so that together, each in its sector, help to monitor and nationally charge the implementation of these guidelines.

In addition to this document, last week was the launch of the Goals of Sustainable Development, a document that will guide the goals to be achieved globally by 2030 where population aging was contemplated in its inclusive language at all. This was an achievement after many efforts over the past three years, non-governmental organizations with consultative status at the UN representing the elderly so that this fastest growing segment demographically globally, was not left behind as in previous documents.
