The Network was launched in July 2018 through a two-day meeting that was preceded by interviews between the Secretariat and interested WHO Collaborating Centers and other institutions to become members of the network. The aim of the workshop was to develop a clear work plan for the new WHO-CC+ Network on Healthy Ageing.

Members of the Network Secretariat participated in a workshop on motivation and healthy aging, co-organized by members of the University of Zurich, the Velux Foundation, and WHO, on December 16-17, 2019. The two-day workshop was held with a group of invited international and interdisciplinary scholars who are experts in motivation and aging and related fields. As a result of this workshop, a special issue will be published in the Journals of Gerontology: Psychological Sciences in 2021.
