WHO launched an International Consortium on Metrics and Evidence for Healthy Ageing in 2017 with 50+ experts from all WHO regions including policy-makers, civil society organizers and researchers to channel global expertise and contribute to work identified as priorities. A key priority included developing the methods and contents for the Global Baseline Report for the Decade of Healthy Ageing. The report is designated as a WHO global public health good.
The 2020 annual meeting provided an opportunity to review what has been done to develop the baseline report, and discuss how to move forward on three related products between 2021-2023. Our Directors Tracey Howe and Vivian Welch gave presentations about What can be done – increase evidence for impact and Evidence synthesis – tools to advance impact.
