The Global Coalition on Aging, the Japanese Mission to the UN, and UNDESA will host a series of interventions by senior-level representatives from GCOA members and partners and from UN Missions. These interventions will highlight the contributions and connections between the work of the private and public sectors and the advancement of the Sustainable Development Goals in the context of the Decade of Healthy Ageing.
