By 17/12/2021 0 Comments

It is estimated that the global old-age population will double by 2050, and as people age, their ability to cope with the rapidly changing socio-economic environment and the subsequent societal support required to maintain a healthy life diminishes. Pakistan is home to 9.4 million senior citizens, and much of the social infrastructure present in its modern cities do not facilitate senior citizens. They continue to struggle with the fast-paced urban life and the challenges it presents on a day-to-day basis. There is a need to make cities inclusive for people of all ages and capabilities. It is important to reintegrate senior citizens in modern urban settings to create a healthy, more inclusive, and sustainable society.
