ILC Global Alliance Celebrate's UN International Day of Older Persons
The ILC Global Alliance was proud to join the United Nations in celebrating the nineteenth annual International Day of Older Persons. We were thrilled to reflect on the contributions of older people to societies around the world. We also congratulated all of those who have made enormous strides to improve the lives of older persons as it is our belief that these efforts will ultimately benefit people of all ages.
The first Global Citizen Science for Health conference was held from 29 October to 1 November 2023. This is the registration of the keynote "The Participatory Turn in Health Research: Its Roots, Methods, Ethics, Validity and Future" by professor Dr Tineke Abma.
With contributions from 21 authors, the book "Prevention of frailty among older persons in Japan: A community-wide approach" reflects the decades of first-hand experience of Prof. Tsujii, a former senior official at the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare.
