New body to be created to develop Third Age policy

The council of ministers on Tuesday approved the creation of a new body tasked with developing a policy on the elderly.

The new body, Third Age will replace the existing Coordinating Body for the Elderly.

It will be tasked with developing a strategy for the Third Age, to promote active and healthy ageing, and the rights of the elderly. It will also aim at coming up with a plan for the best possible ways to serve the growing population group of the Third Age.

According to Deputy Government Spokesperson, Kellia Vasileiou, the body will also look into ways of utilising “the valuable contribution of the elderly to the wider society”, but also combat social stereotypes and discrimination against the elderly.
