Ageing

Country of origin: UK

A report, from the University of Birmingham, explores how good ageing in a multi-cultural society is defined. It is looking in particular at how good health in later life can be promoted.

This report presents the commission's key findings and sets out recommendations for healthy ageing in a diverse society. It makes recommendations towards the creation of a statutory post of Commissioner for Older People; it highlights the importance of human rights within health and social care policy; and emphasises the need for recognising the voice of older people.
