With the rapid pace of population ageing, it is imperative to consider how to maintain the well-being of older persons as an integral part of a
society for all ages. A change in the societal attitudes and perspective towards ageing is vital to protect the rights of older persons, encourage their participation in economic, social and cultural activities and enhance their well-being.
The focus of this research program is to enhance understanding of the socio-economic impact of an ageing society to older persons and their family, the community and the nation. The research groups under this programme provide stakeholders and beneficiaries with relevant evidence and robust projections to inform age-friendly policies and programmes as well as services for older persons.
