Global Status Report on Healthy Ageing, 73rd World Health Assembly

On prior resolution, a global status report on healthy ageing has been submitted to the WHO’s 73rd World Health Assembly held in 2020. [1] It provides data and figures, and reviews progress made on actions for the proposed Decade of Healthy Ageing 2020-2030. SHARE data builds the main data source for the report’s analyses about healthy ageing: data for 27 out of the 30 countries included are dragged from SHARE’s Wave 7, thus, making use of SHARE’s cross-country perspective and comparability with its sister studies. Researched topics include age distribution across countries, prevalence of functional limitations and impact of health services and social care systems, amongst others.
