AnnotationThe principles embodied in the Declaration of Alma-Ata suggest that greater attention should be paid to family and community care, supported by the primary health care services. This Working Group was the first WHO meeting convened to discuss technical aspects of the care of older people since the Declaration had been adopted. The Working Group discussed working papers and presentations on the following topics: the needs of older people as defined by population studies; the manpower and institutional resources required for continuing care; self-care; informal care; formal care systems; and the integration of institutional care with primary care services.
