Partner Organisations: Our partners and stakeholders include:
We engage in regular exchanges with our stakeholders and partners and with organizations and initiatives. This enables us to assess other people’s expectations of our SEHAT SEVA project initiative at an early stage, build knowledge and pool resources.
Our Stakeholders Engagement Management is governed by “AGEDcare – Advisory Group for Elder care Development”, comprises of selected representatives from all walks of civil society organisations, government and inter-governmental organisations focussing on UN Decade of Healthy Ageing with a goal to foster healthy ageing and improve the lives of older people and their families and communities. A fundamental shifts will be required not only in the actions we take but in how we think about age and ageing as detailed in the four areas of action:
- Age Friendly Environments
- Combating Ageism
- Integrated Home Care
- Long-term care
The UN Decade of Healthy Ageing requires a whole-of-government and whole-of-society response. We seek to connect and convene the stakeholders who can help us promote and act upon the four action areas at various levels and to support those seeking to find and share knowledge that can improve the lives of older people, their families and communities.
The Advisory Group will act as a key interlocutor to enable, lead and support an all-of-society engagement in the implementation of the UN Decade of Healthy Ageing as well as NPHCE, NAP SrC / Atal Vayo Abhyudaya Yojana (AVYAY) at the local, regional and national levels.
