International Federation on Ageing (IFA) 13th Global Conference

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.  Learn more about this important work on the IFA website.
