Age Friendly

In 2006, the WHO (World Health Organization) launched a major study in 33 different cities around the globe to determine what amenities optimize and enhance the quality of life for residents as they age.  The results of the study launched WHO’s Global Age-Friendly Cities Network.  In the past nine years, hundreds of cities from around the world have embraced Age-Friendly ideals and are creating programs to incorporate the goals developed by the WHO. Currently in the United States, 38 cities, including the City of San José, have been accepted into the WHO Age-Friendly City Network.
