Age-Friendly City Movement

The World Health Organization’s Global Network of Age-Friendly Cities is focused on helping cities to prepare for a future with more residents who are older. Key areas cities must address to meet WHO standards include access to public transportation, appropriate housing community support and health services. 

A growing number of cities and communities worldwide are striving to better meet the needs and preferences of residents as our population grows older. The WHO Global Network of Age-friendly Cities and Communities (the Network) was established to foster the exchange of experience and mutual learning between cities and communities worldwide. Any city or community that is committed to creating inclusive and accessible jurisdictions is welcome to join.
