IAHSA’s Global Ageing Network has recently expanded into new territory – implementation of a global technology network.

Earlier in 2008 IAHSA and the Center for Aging Services Technologies [CAST] entered into an agreement to foster the development of CAST Affiliated Action Networks [CAST AAN] with IAHSA member organizations around the world.

Last week the first CAST AAN was formed in Australia, thanks to the leadership of Greg Mundy at ACSA and Rod Young at ACAA, IAHSA’s affiliate associations.

The Australian CAST AAN will also include members from the Aged Care Industry IT Council as well as other research and industry representatives.

IAHSA and the CAST AANs will promote the development, evaluation and adoption of emerging technologies that have the potential to support people as they age. Contact us if you would like more information about how to organize a CAST AAN in your country.
