The International Federation on Ageing (IFA) is an international non-governmental organization with a membership base of NGOs, the corporate sector, academia, government, and individuals.

WE BELIEVE in 'generating positive change for older people throughout the world by stimulating, collecting, analyzing, and disseminating information on rights, policies, and practices that improve the quality of life of people as they age.'

Our priorities are to establish the IFA as a point of connection that links together NGOs, academia, policy makers, and the private sector; facilitates knowledge exchange through our networks; collaborates in research and provides a repository of information; is a reference point for policy knowledge around areas with global implications: age discrimination, engaging seniors, financial protection, and age-friendly communities.

It is our mission to:

- Respond to the need for information on policies, practices, and rights
- Facilitate interaction and collaboration between all sectors concerned with ageing issues
- Providing a reliable platform for information exchange, empowerment and connection
- Bridge gaps in the knowledge and understanding of the ageing experience
- Develop tools to empower older people and the various groups working with them
- Help foster an age friendly environment at the global, regional and local levels

The IFA has consistently campaigned for the rights of older people in a diversity of ways, including involvement in drafting key initiatives, participating in and hosting global conferences, and producing our own reports and publications.

In sum, the IFA exists to inform, educate and promote policies and practice to improve the quality of life of older persons around the world.
