“Longevity: Shaping the Future”.
Ageing and health was also the theme of this year's World Health Day on 7 April.
These themes focus on how healthy behaviours throughout life can help
older men and women lead full and productive lives and
be a resource for their families and communities.
On this International Day of Older Persons, let us pledge to ensure the well-being of older persons and to enlist their meaningful participation in society
so we can all benefit from their knowledge and ability."
Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon
