Mid-term progress on the Global strategy
Since the Global strategy and action plan on ageing and health was adopted in May 2016, the World Health Organization and its Member States have been converting the plan into action. To assess the progress that has been made in implementing this strategy, WHO collected data on 10 indicators from countries and regions. This information was used to develop a mid-term progress report that was presented at the Seventy-first World Health Assembly in May 2018, as requested by WHO’s 194 Member States.
