Welcome to the website of the WHO Collaborating Center Plus (WHO-CC +) Network for Healthy Ageing, that has been founded in the summer of 2018 and includes WHO Collaborating Centers and other institutions that focus specifically or indirectly on aging and health. Together, we aim for a more global and broader understanding of healthy ageing, facilitating and connecting global research initiatives in the framework of the WHO Healthy Ageing definition.
Healthy Ageing is defined “as the process of developing and maintaining the functional ability that enables wellbeing in older age”. Functional ability represents the capabilities that enable all individuals to be and do what they have reason to value. Find out more about the key WHO Healthy Ageing concepts on the WHO website.
