This IUSSP Scientific Panel on Ageing in developing countries will focus on the most pressing problems produced by rapid ageing in developing countries. The Panel aims to highlight the relevant issues and how they can be studied maximizing the advantage of comparative work in different cultural settings. The Panel will examine conditions in developed countries only to the extent that such examination can be used for contrast and comparison purposes and to illuminate, or to help us understand the problem of older persons in developing regions. We will advance the work of the Panel by arranging scientific meetings, cyber seminars, exchange of information and through ongoing discussion and collaboration.
