Estimated Start date: March 2022

Expected duration: 9 months (March 2022 to December 2022)


The number of older persons in Asia Pacific Region is expected to double by 2050. This poses challenges for rapidly ageing developing economies like Malaysia to create an inclusive society. APEC economies need holistic and equitable support systems in a multisectoral collaborative approach to encompass all relevant sectors, integrated for an economy’s growth. This project seeks to harness the favourable impact of healthy and active ageing through the identification of best practice s such as lifelong learning for continual productivity, linking and networking this human resource with social and economic needs of society, thus providing opportunity for rethinking, in line with the second action plan of WHO global strategy on ageing and health. These best practices will benefit developing economies that are seeing demographic trends shifting towards a growing ageing of the population and its current economic challenges. Therefore, this project aims to:

  1. To support the APEC economies in increasing awareness and understanding on best practices and strategies in addressing healthy and active ageing challenges for the population in this region, focusing on areas with economic benefits and maintaining good health, with the pivotal role of digital technologies.
  2. To encourage and enhance cross fertilisation of innovative ideas amongst APEC economies on health and active ageing initiatives.
  3. To enhance capacity building of participating economies by promoting collaboration, information sharing as well as proactive cooperation and networking.
