City of Jackson Joins AARP Network of Age-Friendly Communities and the World Health Organization (WHO) Global Network of Age-Friendly Cities and Communities

Jackson, MS – The City of Jackson is the latest city to join AARP’s network of age-friendly communities as it seeks to develop a more human scale, equitable, and sustainable community for all. AARP will serve as a catalyst to educate, encourage, promote, and recognize improvements that stand to make the City more supportive of its senior population as well as residents of all ages.

Additionally, the World Health Organization (WHO) has developed a Global Network of Age-Friendly Cities and Communities to encourage and promote public policies to increase the number of cities and communities that support healthy aging to improve the health, well-being, satisfaction, and quality of life for older Americans.
