Call for Abstracts: IFA Global Conference on Ageing


As a response to the unprecedented times and challenges the Covid-19 pandemic has brought, the IFA announces, the first virtual and in-person 15th Global Conference, entitled “Rights Matter”,  where delegates from all over the world will have the opportunity to benefit, interact, listen and learn from five themes, fifteen sub-themes, three keynote speakers, three presidential symposiums, and one exhibition space.
