International Day of Older Persons 2019 (IDOP) - End Immunisation Inequality Toward Healthy Ageing
11 Oct 2019 -  The 2019 United Nations International Day of Older Persons (UN IDOP) theme “the journey to age equality” focuses on pathways of coping with existing and preventing future old age inequality. The theme will explore levers to cope with demographic and other societal and structural change and to shift the narrative of “old age”.
In celebration of UN IDOP, the IFA aims to bring together international professionals to discuss the critical importance of a life-course approach to immunisation as part of the universal health care agenda. Special attention to the social and economic consequences of influenza and the protective effects of immunisation will be explored.
