The world is in the midst of a unique and irreversible process of demographic transition that will result in older populations everywhere. As fertility rates decline, the proportion of persons aged 60 and over is expected to double between 2007 and 2050, therefore the ageing-related issues have become major concerns for all countries. WCGG-2014 will bring together leading gerontologists, geriatrics scholars, policy decision-makers, professional activists, related companies, and researchers in one place to share recent discoveries and study results in the field of Geriatrics and Gerontology.
