Good health adds life to years: Posters

1 March 2012

WHO has designed a series of posters challenging the current stereotypes older people have to grapple with. They show older people in positive situations. The posters feature a PLAY button as seen on internet videos symbolizing the dynamism and enjoyment that older people can and should have in their lives.

The posters can be downloaded as a complete set in low or high resolution PDF format or individually in high resolution JPG format for professional printing.
