Developing relevant policies for the elderly

Developing support systems for older people
As their populations age, most countries are simultaneously confronted by economic constraints. In such a climate, aging is often low on the list of priorities.
An [International Plan of Action on Aging] has been formulated by the United Nations.
The expanded awareness of aging issues must be tapped; specific priorities must be identified; and resources must be marshalled. If specific measures based on existing structures and activities are instituted, and collaborative efforts encompassing governments and intergovernmental and nongovernmental organizations are intensified, the synergy will achieve more, even with limited resources.
