In his remarks addressed at the General Assembly of the United Nations on 25 September 2018, H.E. Mr. Recep Tayyip ERDOĞAN, the President of the Republic of Turkey underlined the need to declare 2019 as the Year of Older Persons and to organize an Council on Ageing. Accordingly, we have identified the theme of the 1st Council on Ageing which will be organized under the auspices of the Presidency of Turkish Republic as “supporting active ageing” and “strengthening the rights of older persons”.

Population dynamics have been changing in the world. Birth rate decreases rapidly, while life expectancy and the rate of the elderly population increases within the general population.

ABOUT COUNCIL

Turkey has been listed among the most successful OECD countries regarding the increase in life expectancy. While life expectancy at birth was 64.26 years i n 1990, this number increased to 70 in 2000 and approximately to 76 in 2018. 6 million 895 thousand and 385 people, corresponding to 8.8% of the total population are consisted of individuals at or above 65 years age. It is expected that elderly population will reach 8.6 million by 2023 and 19 million 442 thousand people by 2050. As a consequence of the development in health-care and social services in Turkey the life expectancy increases and as a result, the rate of older population is being increasing rapidly. Therefore, meeting the multiple needs of the elderly population timely and with a holistic approach becomes an issue with growing importance in Turkey.
