About the product

As population ageing becomes increasingly important in countries of Eastern Europe, the Caucasus and Central Asia, national Governments in this region are taking steps to integrate a consideration of ageing and older people into their policy making. UNECE assists countries in this endeavour by developing Road Maps for Mainstreaming Ageing. This report presents the findings and recommendations from the Road Map project in Armenia. While pension reform is found to be one of the principal measures necessary to facilitate Armenia's adaptation to an ageing society, the Road Map emphasizes that mainstreaming ageing into all policy areas -- health care, housing, educaiton, amongst others -- is vital to ensure success and safeguard the well-being of older persons.
