More about GAN:

The mission of The Global Ageing Network is to connect and support care and service providers worldwide to enhance the quality of life for ageing. The Global Ageing Network was founded as the International Association of Homes and Services for the Ageing (IAHSA) in 1994 by an international group of leaders who realized that the global ageing phenomenon would have a profound impact on our earth’s elders. Their vision was to create a platform for policymakers, researchers, businesses and ageing services providers to collectively share their knowledge and best practices to enhance the quality of care for the elderly. Over the years, The Global Ageing Network has created an international forum for the exchange of research, services, products and training that make up the Global Ageing Network.

Over the past year, the Global Ageing Network has grown to become a critical link among providers around the world. The Global Ageing Network’s diversity is not only reflected in the fact that members are from over 60 countries, but also from a wide variety of backgrounds and experiences on ageing issues members represent. The opportunity to come together to share challenges and successes, explore partnerships and staff exchanges, make connections across continents and countries, learn new approaches and meet with colleagues has been a hallmark of the Global Ageing Network's initiatives.
