Capacity building journey ISO/TC 314 on Ageing societies.
As a result of increased life expectancy, aged societies have emerged in many countries. In addition, developing countries and regions with rapid economic growth will be subject to increases to their ageing population over the next few decades. Whilst the increased ageing of society presents a number of challenges, such as increased pressure on health and social services, there are likely to be opportunities that will allow people to effectively manage their long term care, and live a high quality of life independently from institutionalized care nursing homes and hospitals for a sustained period. Standards could provide a way of setting out the principles for delivering the new products, services and solutions that will meet the future needs of our ageing societies in a new environment.
ISO/TC 314 was established in December 2017 and has since had 6 plenary meetings. In this strategically important time we urge more experts become involved and support the development of standards.
To ensure that developing country voices are heard in this important committee, the ISO capacity building unit is launching a capacity building journey to support efficient developing country participation in ISO/TC 314. This initiative is implemented as part of the ISO Action Plan for Developing Countries 2021-2025.
