What is it About?

Welcome to the 10th Malaysian Conference on Healthy Ageing. We are really proud to be able to declare that the conference is now in its 20th year. Not only has it stood the test of time, the Malaysian Health Ageing Society has also sprouted the World Congress on Health Ageing and the ASEAN Congress on Health Ageing.

This year’s theme is “Holistic Healthy Ageing: 10 Pillars to Living Longer, Healthier and Better”. Thanks to our Scientific Chairpersons, we have a lively program which we hope clearly highlights the life course approach to healthy ageing while providing at least a bit of something for everyone.

We are delighted that the conference is being held at the picturesque Tanjung Bungah beach. Of course, we would want to make sure that you attend all the sessions you can, but don’t forget to make time to visit all the lovely sights on this beautiful island too. Penang is well known for its scrumptious cuisine, so don’t leave without trying a bit of everything.

The World Health Organization has declared 2021-2030 the Decade of Health Ageing. Therefore, it is only apt that as the MCHA enters its third decade, we pay tribute to the founders of this movement. We were told that it all started 20 years ago with the 1st Malaysian Conference on Health Ageing, at the Universiti Putra Malaysia by Prof Nathan Vytialingam and Dr Rajbans Singh. With his indefatigable spirit and infectious passion, Prof Nathan has brought many of together us to grow this conference, and the important message it carries, into the glorious event it is today. Thank you, Prof Nathan for your devotion to this cause!

Finally, it is not going to be easy to choose which breakout session to go to, so choose wisely. Don’t go anywhere during break times, as its network time. We hope you find lifelong collaborators at this event that will become the springboard to future innovations and ventures to continue to promote healthy ageing in our nation.
