The use of technology to support and enhance the health, safety and social connectedness of older people is a very important element in ensuring quality of life. The Global Ageing Network plays an important role on two levels:

1. IAHSA/CAST Affiliated Action Networks

IAHSA and the Center for Aging Services Technology (CAST) developed a global network of organisations that seek to expand the use of technology to address the needs of our ageing society. We are working together to establish the IAHSA/CAST Affiliated Action Networks with a vision that technologies can improve the quality of life for seniors while reducing health care costs.

The IAHSA/CAST Affiliated Action Network includes ageing services providers, technology companies, research institutions and other stakeholders. Its mission is to provide leadership in the development, evaluation and adoption of technologies that will transform the ageing experience.
