WHO Global Network of
Age-friendly Cities and Communities

The WHO Global Network of Age-friendly Cities and Communities (“the Network”) was established in 2010 to connect cities and communities worldwide with the common vision of making their communities more age-friendly. The Network provides a global platform for information exchange, experience sharing, and mutual learning.

As at January 2018, the Network includes 533 cities and communities from 37 countries, covering over 158 million people worldwide. New York City, USA was the first city to join the Network in July 2010. For Hong Kong, 12 districts, namely Central and Western, Islands, Kwai Tsing, Kwun Tong, North, Sai Kung, Sha Tin, Southern, Tai Po, Tsuen Wan, Wan Chai and Yau Tsim Mong, have also joined the Network.

To join the Network, cities and communities have to:

  1. Establish mechanisms to involve older people throughout the Age-friendly Cities and Communities cycle, for example, by building partnerships with government and civil society (including NGOs and academic institutions);
  2. Develop a baseline assessment of the age-friendliness of the city/community;
  3. Develop a 3-year action plan based on the findings of this assessment; and
  4. Identify indicators to monitor progress against this plan
