Description

(ARC/NHMRC Research Network in Ageing Well) The National Strategy for an Ageing Australia (2002) calls for planning underpinned by research to prepare for an ageing Australia. Research by network participants will inform actions to achieve the vision of an additional 10 years of healthy and productive life expectancy by 2050 (Prime Minister's PMSEIC report Promoting Healthy Ageing in Australia, 2002). It also will inform ways to limit the economic costs and public expenditure for the large baby boom's entry into later life (Intergenerational Report, Treasury, 2002). The Network's long term success will be judged by the extent to which older people lead healthier, happier, more independent, and more socially connected lives and make fewer demands on the younger generation
