The WHO Collaborating Centre on Life Course and Health supports the World Health Organization (WHO) by contributing to knowledge and data on life course and ageing research through reports and scientific publications and participating as experts in WHO meetings, and acting as a liaison.
Worldwide the population is ageing. However, there is much heterogeneity in how people age. Knowledge on determinants of healthy ageing trajectories is required to promote healthy ageing worldwide. The WHO Collaborating Centre on Life Course and Health has expertise on longitudinal cohort data, modelling techniques and the effect of lifestyle and other determinants on ageing.
WHO Collaborating Centre on Life Course and Health is coordinated by Prof. Monique Verschuren and Dr Doctor (Doctor ) Liset Rietman, RIVM Department of Life Course and Health.
