Ageing in the Asia-Oceania SIG

The Ageing in the Asia-Oceania (formerly Ageing Research and Education in the Asia-Oceania Region) Special Interest Group (SIG) was established by the AAG Council in early 2012.

The SIG has since evolved with the AAG membership base beyond just researchers and educators, and includes a focus on promoting collaboration amongst practitioners, policy-makers and other professionals. With this change, the SIG was renamed in 2021 as the Ageing in the Asia-Oceania Region SIG.

A particular focus of the Asia-Oceania Region SIG remains promoting connections with other organisations, and individual members of these organisations, in the International Association of Gerontology and Geriatrics (IAGG) Asia-Oceania region.


The main objectives of the SIG are to:

  • Promote exchanges between members of the AAG who have an interest in ageing in the Asia-Oceania region.
  • Promote collaboration between individual AAG members and members of other organisations within the International Association of Gerontology and Geriatrics (IAGG) Asia-Oceania region.
  • Enhance the role of the AAG in the region through liaison with national organisations within the IAGG Asia-Oceania Region.
