Ministry of Health:
UN working group on ageing

The Open-Ended Working Group on Ageing was established by the General Assembly by resolution 65/182 on 21 December 2010. The working group considers the existing international framework of the human rights of older persons and identify possible gaps and how best to address them, including by considering, as appropriate, the feasibility of further instruments and measures.

I attended the working group in 2013, 2014 and 2018. In that year I gave a presentation on what the Netherlands is doing in the fields of long-term care and palliative care.
