World Health Organization: World Report on Ageing and Health (2015)

The world report on ageing and health calls for urgent comprehensive public health action on population ageing.  Requiring fundamental shifts in how we think about ageing itself,  the world report outlines a framework for action to foster healthy ageing by focusing on functional ability.  Investments into health and ageing of older people will have valuable social and economic returns for health and wellbeing and on-going participation in society.

Applications and supporting documentation are to be sent to the Foundation of Registered Nurses of Manitoba.
