WNC 2017 Symposium and AGM

After many months of planning, the Ex-Co are pleased to announce that the G-MUSC Symposium and Annual General Meeting (AGM) and will be held in Berlin from October 22-23, 2017.  The meeting will be in part jointly held in collaboration with the World Health Organisation with support from the Federal Ministry of Health of Germany and the Japan Ministry of Labour and Social Welfare. A WHO Global Consultation meeting will be held alongside our Symposium and will have as its focus “Integrated Care for Older People – the path to Universal Health Coverage.”     

As an outcome of our G-MUSC Symposium meeting, at the request of the Federal Ministry of Health of Germany, we would like to develop and agree on a ‘consensus document’ regarding the importance of musculoskeletal health and maintenance of mobility over the life course with a particular focus on the role of integrated care in delivery of the programme..  This document will help to support the prioritisation of musculoskeletal health in the WHO Healthy Ageing work. Maintaining mobility and a healthy musculoskeletal system is essential for quality of life and is particularly important in older people and we hope that you will be able to join us in Berlin where you can offer input into the development and finalisation of this consensus document.
