  • 8th World Congress on Long Term Care in Chinese Communities and Asian Ageing Development Conference02

    The World Congress on Long Term Care in Chinese Communities was

    held every year since 2002. It is a major event to highlight the advances

    of development in Long Term Care in different Chinese Communities

    in the world. The conference was held in Hong Kong in 2002, Taipei in

    2004, Shanghai in 2005, Macao in 2006, Beijing in 2007, Taipei in 2009

    and Shanghai in 2010. The conference was attended by academics, policy

    makers, practitioners from various fields related to Long Term Care and

    each year more than 500 participants from various countries participated in

    this important event on Long Term Care in Chinese Communities.

    In 2011, the Hong Kong Association of Gerontology, in collaboration with

    the Association of Long Term Care in Chinese Communities, is hosting

    the 8th World Congress on Long Term Care in Chinese Communities and

    Asian Ageing Development Conference in Hong Kong, from November 24-26. It also incorporates the

    celebration of the 25th anniversary of the Hong Kong Association of Gerontology. The conference theme

    is 3As in Aged Care Advocacy, Advancement and Achievement. It integrates the different aspects of

    aged care and long term care in Chinese Communities and Asian countries.

    This conference draws together a diverse range of researchers, practitioners, service providers, policy and

    planning representatives, educators and others working in all areas of long term care. Invited keynote and

    plenary speakers from various countries in the region and other countries, as well as symposiums, papers,

    and posters of the latest advances will be presented, along with pre and post conference workshops on

    specific issues. In addition, we have arranged for interesting organization visits covering hospital geriatrics

    Discover Hong Kong

    Hong Kong is situated on the southeast coast of China at the mouth of the Pearl River facing the South

    China Sea. The territory is made up of Hong Kong Island, the Kowloon Peninsula and the New Territories.

    At the core is Victoria Harbour, which separates Hong Kong Island from Kowloon Peninsula and beyond

    that, the New Territories that runs up to the boundary with Mainland China. Despite its dense urban

    environment, about three quarters of Hong Kongs total area is countryside, including about 40%

    designated as country parks and special areas that are all easily accessible. Hong Kong offers a host of

    memorable tourist attractions within its compacted area, and you will be amazed by the diverse contrasts

    and close proximity of stunning cityscapes and soaring mountains, heritage sites and extensive green

    countryside.
