About the event

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) strive to forge a better and sustainable future by tackling poverty, hunger, health, gender equity, and other pressing global challenges. This insightful monograph delves into the complexities of ageing populations and their potential impact on healthcare systems, using a compelling case study on Hong Kong. By highlighting the significance of primary care for the elderly and advocating for disease prevention and screening schemes, the book offers invaluable wisdom for policymakers and healthcare professionals. It sheds light on the profound interplay between ageing and the SDGs, particularly in the realm of health and wellness.
