“Our goal must be a world in which good health is a pillar of individual well-being, national progress, and international stability and peace. This cannot be achieved without partnerships involving governments, international organizations, the business community, and civil society.”

— Kofi A. Annan, Secretary-General of the United Nations

Donate to Healthy Aging Fund

The population of persons aged 60 and older in Latin America and the Caribbean is increasing considerably—1 million more people added each year through 2010 and 2 million more each year between 2010 and 2020. It is estimated that by 2025 the number of older persons will be 100 million. Yet, few health care workers in the region are familiar with the chronic diseases and special needs of the aged. The health sectors in Latin America and the Caribbean need to be prepared to manage these diseases and needs. The groundwork to begin the process of reorienting the health sectors is being built. Your gift can help bring a longer, healthier life span as for older adults in Latin America and the Caribbean.
