In 2015, the University of Oxford (Oxford Institute of Population Ageing) commissioned by Age International, the World Health Organization Regional Office for the Western Pacific and HelpAge International carried out a study of OPAs in four countries in Asia: Cambodia, China, Myanmar and Vietnam. One of research aims is to assess the impact of the OPA approach on key aspects of the wellbeing of older people in three key domains: health and care; income security and social integration.

After the two year of comprehensive study, this research report offers useful insights of the conditions for successful establishment and replicability of the OPA approach. It also identifies gaps and areas for improvement. The report will be launched in Hanoi, Vietnam.

The methodology, results and recommendations will be presented. Representatives from the four countries will present their country results and experts on ageing will joins a panel on discussion on “The Roles of OPA in Ageing Society”.
