2012 should bring already some added value to the life of the older segment of the population.
The European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing produced since November 2012 the Strategic Implementation Plan on Active and Healthy Ageing which identifies key action areas that should bring about two extra healthy life years (HLYs) to its citizens. Be it through better ways of prevention, screening and early diagnosis or better care and cure, there are many opportunities for more and better both on the side of patients as well as on more systemic issues, where stakeholders such as healthcare professionals and pharmaceutical groups are at a core.
But 2012 is also the European Year of Active Ageing and Intergenerational S0lidarity and beyond the events dedicated to the topic, there is a clear opportunity for more and better as more citizens and civil society organisations can network better, synergise and be informed.
