While older adults continue to make significant social and economic contributions, the global COVID-19 pandemic has in many cases impeded the capacity for older people to participate in their communities. As we collectively seek to establish a “new normal,” this IFA Virtual Town Hall explores good practices in programmes and policies that respect the rights of older persons and support their social engagement and contributions. Sharing insights from the experiences of Singapore is Dr. Thelma Kay, former Senior Advisor on Ageing Issues with the Ministry of Social and Family Development in Singapore.
