Global Ageing and Long-term Care

Members of the China Research Centre participated in an international workshop of the Global Ageing and Long-term Care Network (GALNet) and the inaugural China-India population Ageing Forum in Beijing.

The GALNet project, funded by the ESRC's Global Challenges Research Fund, has developed an international interdisciplinary network on ageing and LTC in order to share expertise, research and best practice from around the world in order to advance scientific debate and inform policy design, centred on the needs of older people and their families. The GALNet project is led by Prof. Maria Evandrou (Department of Gerontology and Centre for Research on Ageing, University of Southampton) and involves a wide range of expertise and partners from international research, policy and third-sector in China, China, Argentina, Kenya, Lesotho, the UK, as well as Help Age International and the World Health Organization. Both meetings were hosted by Prof. Du Peng (Renmin University). More information on the GALNet project can be found here:
