APIAS Newsletter is launched to provide a channel for the public to understand the latest development of the ageing population and how Asia-Pacific Institute of Ageing Studies stried to tackle any existing or potential problems holistically through research, course development and programmes.
This newsletter can also serve as a platform amongst the professionals and academia from different backgrounds to exchange information and opinions over a wide range of ageing issues while sharing their rich experiences in elderly related services and research.
Through communication, we believe the day we achieve our common goal in creating a "society for all ages" is not far away.

同文，英文版將香港房屋協會的合 作伙伴誤譯為「Institute of Surveyors Building Surveying Cooperation」，正確英 文名 稱應為「The Hong Kong Institute of Surveyors」。
Regarding to the article of “Ageing-in-place: Home Enhancement to Give Elderly a ‘Dream Home’” located in page 9 of APIAS Newsletter Vol. 6, viewers should take note to the information error regarding to the eligible age to apply the Elderly Safe Living Scheme which should be 60 years old instead of 65 (Same error also found in the Chinese version).
In the same article, the collaboration partner of Hong Kong Housing Society should be “The Hong Kong Institute of Surveyors” instead of “Institute of Surveyors Building Surveying Cooperation”.
APIAS apologises for any inconvenience these may have caused to HKHS and HKIS.
