Add “life to years” through healthy ageing


人々の寿命は、世界的に延びています 今世紀半ばには、男女あわせて20億もの人が60歳以上になります。 あなたは、こんなふうに考えていませんか: 歳をとると、自分で自分のことができなくなる。 歳をとると、新しいことに挑戦するのがむずかしくなる… 仕事でも… …また、趣味や楽しみにおいても お年寄りは、もう魅力的ではない お年寄りは、病気は仕方がないと受け入れるべき しかし、世界は日々変化しています。既成概念にとらわれていてはいけません。 では、私たちに何ができるのでしょう? 早くから健康的な習慣を身につけること お年寄りを、私たち家族や地域社会の中心に位置づけること お年寄りのニーズをよく理解し、ふさわしい対応をすること お年寄りの社会への貢献を大切にすること 質の良い、手頃な価格の医療を提供すること 高齢者が活き活き暮らす社会は、まわりの人々皆に恩恵をもたらします。 健康であってこその人生

  1. Terrific music, nice graphics, boy these guys are good … I cannot wait to be old!
    Keep up the good work Mont and all our friends at WHO. Good luck with it.

  2. Wow! Impressive! Thank you WHO … I celebrate, respect, value and love every older person! Happy World Health Day!

  3. love it …. both the message and the soundtrack; looking for a Thai version and wonder if there is one.

  4. i knew it….those who are vegans live the longest in life 🙂 they are the ones that knows alot about life and in tune with nature and work with it etc….they are the awakened ones!

  5. Powerful. Will post to The Caregiver's Voice website as the music and message are both inspiring.

  6. Yeah, the older people can do alot of things, including taking care of children and themselves, that's the truth!

  7. An amazing video which very beautifully highlights the demographic scenario of Ageing, emphasizes on negation of stereotypes and myths about senior citizens in society and suggests some of the measures which should be taken both at micro and macro level to make Healthy Ageing possible. As a gerontologist, I personally feel that we should learn something from it and apply it in real life.

  8. we need more of this type of videos for our aging communities. I love to share the message with my Boomers Group and the Seniors we serve in the Peel and Halton Region in Ontario. We can change..we can do something if we start now.

  9. I discovered by chance that playing the United Nations video "It's Your World" at the same time as this video provides an interesting juxtaposition of music and narration regarding world issues. Perhaps this incident provides a good metaphor for how organizations can strengthen each other through parallel lines of work, without the mutual benefit being immediately apparent (or intended).
