Healthy ageing depends on different factors for individuals including genetic, environmental, behavioural and socioeconomic determinants. The World Health Organization defines healthy or active ageing as ‘the process of developing and maintaining the functional ability that enables wellbeing in older age.’

Murray PHN funds projects and programs to aid healthy ageing for people in our communities. You can also read our Murray Health Report on healthy ageing (May 2022) to learn more.
