The International Federation on Ageing in partnership with DaneAge convened the inaugural IFA Copenhagen Summit on 17-19 April 2016 in Copenhagen, Denmark.

The aim of the 2016 Summit was to improve the capacity and capability of older people by creating an international, high-level knowledge exchange platform for thought leaders and decision makers in government, industry and civil society to discuss effective implementation of reablement policy.

Professor Jon Glasby, who is a member of the Frailty Working Group, was part of the group involved in producing an international expert paper on 'reablement and frailty'. The IFA Copenhagen Summit Report on Reablement and Older People offers a synthesis of the expert discussion papers generated at the IFA Global Think Tank in October 2015.
