World Health Day theme: Food safety
This year's World Health Day theme ws food safety. A clean environment and food preparation adapted to older people's needs are paramount to good health.
Ill health and malnourishment can have a direct impact on all aspects of older people's lives, including their ability to earn a living or care for relatives.
As well as campaigning for age-friendly health services, we asked older people to tell us about their food habits and hygiene.
