Abstract

In response to United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UNESCAP) call for policies to be enacted with reference to the Shanghai Implementation Strategy (SIS) developed to echo the Madrid International Plan of Action on Ageing, the Social Service Bureau of the Macao SAR government commissioned the Asia-Pacific Institute of Ageing Studies, Lingnan University, Hong Kong to develop an ‘Ageing Index’ as both a comprehensive indicator of policy implementation and a validated instrument for appraisal of life and service quality by end-users.
