19 Nov, 21

The National Aging Observatory will be born in Alte, in the interior of the Algarve. With the objective of promoting scientific knowledge in this area, the National Aging Observatory intends to collect, analyze and make available statistical indicators that allow the monitoring of the population throughout their life cycle throughout the national territory.

This project aims to stimulate collaboration between research centers from various public, private and civil society institutions in the area of active and healthy aging, creating national and international partnerships.

The opening ceremony takes place on November 19, 2021, at 3:15 pm, at Inatel's premises in Albufeira, and is attended by the Minister of Labour, Solidarity and Social Security, Ana Mendes Godinho.

With aging at the top of the priorities of the European Union and Portugal, it is essential to promote research and knowledge that allow the assessment and support of public policies for active and healthy aging, adapting priorities and the type of health and support responses based on the territory, needs and dynamics of the population, promoting equity throughout the national territory.

The National Aging Observatory, coordinated by the Algarve Biomedical Center (ABC), by Algarve Active Ageing, is the result of a partnership between various public and private entities from various sectors of society*.
