About the IFA ::

The International Federation on Ageing (IFA) is an international non-governmental organization with a membership base of NGOs, the corporate sector, academia, government, and individuals spanning 73 countries. The IFA believes in 'generating positive change for older people throughout the world by stimulating, collecting, analyzing, and disseminating information on rights, policies, and practices that improve the quality of life of people as they age. Priorities are to establish the IFA as a point of…

  • Connection – linking together NGOs, academia, policy makers, and the private sector.
  • Information sharing and exchange – facilitating knowledge exchange through our networks
  • Research and advocacy – collaborating in research and providing a repository of information
  • Policy knowledge – around areas with global implications: age discrimination, engaging seniors, financial protection, and age-friendly communities

The IFA takes a lead to inform, educate and promote policies and practice to improve the quality of life of older persons around the world. Other responsibilities include:

  • Building, facilitating and strengthening bridges between government, non-government and the corporate sectors concerned with ageing issues
  • Strengthening non-government organizations through collaboration toward a common goal
  • Improving the understanding of ageing polices and practice and their impact on the lives of older people

Through its work, the IFA works to influence and promote positive change for older people globally.
