Ageing in Asia

ERIA, in partnership with Japan Center for International Exchange (JCIE), launched a new website to disseminate key data and resources on ageing in Asia and share best practices to respond to this demographic shift.

Asia is facing a massive demographic shift. By 2050, the number of people in Asia who are aged 65 or older is expected to grow to 937 million people—more than double today's number.

Recognising the inevitable impact this will have on the region, the Japanese government launched the Asia Health and Wellbeing Initiative (AHWIN) in 2016. The initiative aims to promote bilateral and regional cooperation to foster sustainable and self-reliant health care systems in the Asian region. The goal of the initiative is to create vibrant and healthy societies where people can enjoy long and productive lives, and to contribute to the region’s sustainable and equitable development as well as economic growth. The initial focus of this initiative is on sharing information and resources and promoting collaborative research and dialogues on ageing.
