Population ageing is a world-wide challenge threatening sustainability of our social and health systems. The RSCN and its Thematic Working Groups have been working on the implementation of innovative good practices for a life-course approach to active and healthy ageing, where age transition represent critical periods associated with physiologic changes that influence long-term health and longevity.
The RSCN proposes establishing a Thematic Working Group on Women’s Health within the Thematic Action Area “Health Promotion and Disease Prevention”. The title of the Thematic Working Group will be “Disease Prevention in women’s health”. The Thematic Working Group will explore the challenges for women’s health during the life-course transitions, and the experiences to address them with innovative policies, approaches and technologies.
Membership of the Thematic Working Group is open to all Reference Sites and members of our other Thematic Working Groups. It will be of particular interest to clinicians, specialist nurses, researchers, public health consultants, patient organisations, and digital technology companies. In addition to representation from Reference Sites the Thematic Working Group will also include representatives from organisations in South and Central America as part of a collaboration agreement the RSCN has with the Americas Continental Health Alliance (ACHA). Further details on this agreement and other joint initiatives the RSCN and ACHA propose taking forward will be announced later.
