The ILC Global Alliance members are pleased to announce the creation of two more ILC centres which add to the existing 12: ILC Brazil and ILC China.
ILC Brazil will be guided by Dr. Alexandre Kalache, Chief of the Ageing and Life Course Programme (ALC) at the World Health Organization in Geneva, and ILC China by Professor Du Peng, Director and Professor of the Gerontology Institute at Renmin University. Both centres are committed to addressing longevity and population change and to promoting healthy ageing and intergenerational solidarity.
This report shows the real life of older adults in Japan. Their labour participation rate, financial assets, relationships with neighbours are described first, and then systems such as pension, medical and long-term care are being explained with numbers and figures.
ILC-Japan has been promoting public-industry collaboration to enhance support for older adults in daily living. After conducting studies with community support coordinators and creating a tool with tips to make improvements, we are now in the implementation stage to build actual collaboration between supermarkets and municipalities.
This Summer, ILC-UK's Founder and Executive President, and one of the founding members of the ILC Global Alliance, Baroness Sally Greengross OBE passed away. She was an inspiration to us all across the ILC family, both professionally and personally, and her legacy will continue to live on.
