The inaugural WHO Global Leaders Healthy Ageing for Impact in the 21st Century trialled the delivery of a global online course providing participants with the competencies and skills needed to work on the agenda of “Healthy Ageing for impact in the 21st Century” as part of the Decade of Healthy Ageing (2020-2030).

“It was an excellent opportunity to work with a global, collaborative team identifying challenges of ageing and designing and developing programmes that contribute to policy that enables older people to live vibrant and meaningful lives”, said Sandra.
