We live in the time of multifaceted societal transition: demographic, familial, and epidemiological. All three transitions are advancing globally, though not universally, and there are enduring deviations. All three transitions bring us significant and welcome opportunities: longer, healthier, and potentially more fulfilling lives. Healthier and happier citizens should benefit their societies and promote development. However, the above opportunities are accompanied by challenges. After highlighting the major challenges and opportunities of ageing societies, the chapter turns to reviewing the international policy frameworks on ageing, focusing on the Madrid International Plan of Action on Ageing and its regional implementation strategies. A brief overview of international policy players in the area of ageing is also included.
