With population ageing, concerns have been made on the quality of life in old age and how older people are supported to do what they value. Many older people continue to contribute to the society, neighbours and families despite their adverse health conditions and illnesses. When we create the environment and opportunities for older people, they can develop and maintain their functional abilities, and continue to interact with others, making their lives valuable and meaningful. WHO advocates this concept ‘Healthy Ageing’ in a way that everyone finds some ways to support older citizens and it developed the Regional Action Plan on Healthy Ageing in the Western Pacific, in 2020. This talk highlights the key objectives of this action plan and discusses what actions can be considered to implement in a community, in particular the use of the WHO ICOPE model for developing community-based integrated care services for older people in various countries in Western Pacific Region.
