RRRL Director Dr. Lisa Brown recently returned from the International Federation on Ageing (IFA) 13th Global Conference on Ageing, which took place in Brisbane, Australia, June 21-23. The conference brought together decision makers, practitioners, researchers, service providers, and community members to share experiences supporting ageing populations worldwide.
The central theme of the Conference was natural and human-induced disasters and health emergencies in an ageing world, in addition to other age-related issues. The program explored approaches to risk reduction, readiness, resilience, response and recovery with the goal of understanding how to establish and design more age-friendly, disaster-prepared communities.
