The World Health Organization Centre for Health Development (WHO Kobe Centre, WKC) convened the Forum to build upon the platform WKC created in 2013 to share information, debate and drive new thinking about the current and emerging health and social challenges surrounding ageing populations and innovations. The Forum, with its theme “IMAGINE TOMORROW,” explored ideas for transforming communities, systems, and technologies for ageing populations worldwide – developments that are timely and key to attaining universal health coverage (UHC) and the new Sustainable Development Goals.

This report is based on material presented and discussions held during the 2nd Global Forum on Innovation for Ageing Populations, 7–9 October 2015, Kobe, Japan. The Global Forum owes its success to the willingness of the participants to share their experiences, knowledge and insights.
