Administration on Aging (AoA)

Global Aging

Welcome to the AoA global aging section. The 21st century is one of profound challenges associated with dramatic increases in the numbers of people living longer. The United Nations has brought much needed attention to this “silent revolution,” which has a profound impact on all societies. This section will describe AoA’s activities in the global arena, and will provide links to other international aging resources and websites.

“Aging” maybe also be spelled “Ageing” by other countries and international organizations.
