From Covid-19 to a decade of healthy ageing

The recording of the excellent ‘From Covid-19 to a Decade of healthy ageing in the IAGG Asia/Oceania Region’ symposium covering seven countries at the recent 2021 IAGG World Pre-Congress eConference on the 23rd of June, is now available for you to view.

AAG former President and Life Member, Professor Julie Byles, Chaired the symposium covering seven countries. The different countries across the region have varied greatly in terms of infection spread, public and political response, and the impacts on their populations. Even where infection rates have been low, the effect on older people has been considerable, with reduced access to health care, social isolation, deconditioning and accelerated rates of physical and cognitive decline.

The eminent presenters included: Professor Ashish Goel (India); Dr Yodi Christiani (Indonesia); Susana Harding (Singapore); and NZAG Vice-President and AJA Editor in Chief, Professor Debra Waters (NZ).
