The IFAs 15th Global Conference on Ageing, entitled “Rights Matter,” is an international platform to improve our understanding of age-friendly environments, to debate the solutions to address inequalities, to confront the reality of ageism, and to delve into what it means to enable the functional ability of an older person.


The V4L Newsletter showcases the innovative work of World Coalition on Adult Vaccination member organizations to enhance and facilitate a dialogue around adult vaccination, healthy ageing, non-communicable diseases and related topics. These newsletters help to connect communities toward collaboration while mobilizing knowledge and influencing policy.

Wise Words

The International Federation on Ageing (IFA), the International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness (IAPB), the International Diabetes Federation (IDF), and Vision Academy – supported by Bayer– have come together to shine a spotlight on the prevention, assessment and treatment of the potentially devastating consequences of Diabetic Retinopathy (DR).

Ask an Expert: IFA Expert Centre

IFA is the leading global point of connection to experts and expertise as a means to help influence and shape policy related to older people and population ageing.  Toward this outcome, the IFA was the first global NGO to launch a “virtual expert centre” that features thought leaders and experts in policy, research and practice in fields associated with population ageing.

Expert Spotlights

Vaccination is an important element of a comprehensive health promotion strategy to healthy ageing, as science shows reduced burden of infectious diseases, decreased functional decline and additional healthy life years. As people age, immune system function declines, leaving older people at a higher risk for infectious diseases such as shingles, pneumonia and influenza.
