Because global ageing is such a broad term, we need to clearly define our scope. The description of the scope will help to delineate the way in which global ageing is conceptualized and our activities are prioritised. 

We plan to commence the following initiatives and projects and welcome advice, support, funding and expertise to enable them.

Representing an organisation? We are seeking to develop formal relationships with organisations that are interested in evidence synthesis and dissemination of evidence. Please contact us globalageing@cochrane.org
