The International Federation on Ageing (IFA) is pleased to introduce the inaugural edition of the Age-friendly Innovation Exchange (AFIX) newsletter!

It is the IFA’s hope that this newsletter will be a forum for age-friendly experts and enthusiasts to share their work on all age-friendly topics, and for the IFA to share our collaborative work with the World Health Organization (WHO) on age-friendly environments (AFE) – including at the IFA 14th Global Conference on Ageing.

The 14th Global Conference will have a dedicated age-friendly track to showcase significant AFE work and enable conversations about AFE among various stakeholders. The IFA encourages the submission of abstracts on the AFE theme.

The IFA believes in supporting the age-friendly community to strengthen positive and reciprocal working relationships between those in the field. As such, the IFA is delighted to present the AFIX newsletter as a knowledge exchange platform available to highlight work being done in age-friendly.
