The Argentine Society of Gerontology and Geriatrics (SAGG) and the Argentine Gerontological Association (AGA) have made a joint effort to chair the 22nd World Congress of Gerontology and Geriatrics, which will take place in virtual format from June 12 to 16, 2022. This is a unique opportunity for all practitioners from multiple aging-related disciplines to update and exchange know-how and experiences. This Congress is the outcome of the effort made by all such professionals devoted to geriatrics and gerontology focusing on aging and old age, the SAGG since 1951 and the AGA since 1987.
We take over the motto we have proposed at the heart of our Organizing Committee:
CARE: Commitment + Actions + Research + Equity
In principle, we have the will to address topics with our academic Commitment to the needs of an ageing population with no exceptions worldwide. This commitment is essential to break down societal inequalities affecting equitable access to successful ageing.
Parallelly, we intend to take Actions enabling access to knowledge of the necessary tools that may enhance possibilities for practitioners from all disciplines to properly intervene in preventing frailty, promoting independence and autonomy, and at the same time empowering older adults consistently with such goals.
Therefore, it is important to stimulate Research into all fields of knowledge and be able to share the outcome at these conferences.
All the foregoing should aim at securing Equity in the promotion of bio-psycho-social welfare of the elderly.
Our commitment is a great challenge to so many changes. And we need you to attain this goal.
The General Chair and Organizing Committee of the 22nd IAGG World Congress of Gerontology and Geriatrics - IAGG 20222 invites you to participate actively and reminds you that: “Old age is the present for some people and the future for all”.
