Nutrition for older persons
Article 10 of the Political Declaration
Second World Assembly on Ageing (Madrid, 8–12 April 2002)
The potential of older persons is a powerful basis for future development. This enables society to rely increasingly on the skills, experience and wisdom of older persons, not only to take the lead in their own betterment but also to participate actively in that of society as a whole.
