This SIG brings together AGS members who have an interest in the development of international initiatives in geriatrics care and education. As our global older adult population continues to grow, we will see an increasing demand for health and social-service systems tailored to older adult needs. We promote awareness of global trends in aging and healthcare issues in older adults across continents and international borders. We emphasize improving care of older adults around the world by enhancing networking and establishing partnerships that can translate into improved geriatrics care and education, greater use of technology to conduct didactic sessions with participants from multiple countries, long-term international collaborations for models of care and geriatrics education, and increased involvement and representation of AGS members in international geriatrics conferences and organizations.
