Connecting the Dots: Formal and Informal Care
5th Senior Government Officials Meeting 10 June 2014 ::

The Senior Government Officials Meeting (SOM) is an opportunity for senior government officials and Ministers to meet and examine current trends in policy and practice on specific areas of interest in light of the increasing population ageing. This SOM will focus on connecting formal and informal care. Senior government officials and Ministers will consider the challenges and barriers that hinder the connections between formal care and informal caregiving and by examining existing trends will determine potential policy options to enact positive change in their respective countries.

The SOM gives delegates the opportunity to meet colleagues from around the world, develop policy and programs relating to connecting informal and formal care, and establish a global network of colleagues from whom to obtain advice and understand the key factors that underpin success. The IFA would like to invite you to respond to a surveyrelated to government policies and current experiences in this area. The survey forms a strong basis to develop a program that is meaningful for delegates of the SOM to ensure it is productive and beneficial for all participants. Your input is highly valued!
