Sharjah is Officially an Age-Friendly City

Sharjah has become the first Arab city to join the World Health Organisation’s Global Network of Age-Friendly Cities and Communities, following the inaugural meeting of the city’s age-friendly network committee in May.

Falling under the emirate’s 2017-2020 strategic plan and building on its numerous environmental, ecological and societal programmes launched in recent years, the objectives related to the new four-year status include improving services offered to older members of society across various sectors and preparing the community for a demographic shift in favour of the elderly as a result of the population’s ageing.
