Description:
It gives me great pleasure to be here with you today to open this conference on The Elderly - A Challenge to the General Hospital. The C.onference, which is being organised by the Irish health services on behalf of the Hospital Committee of the European Community in association with the World Health Organisation, is a major event in the calendar of events to mark the European Year of Older People and Solidarity between Generations. The European Community has designated this year to honour older citizens, to focus on the challenges and opportunities of an ageing Europe and to reinforce links between the generations. In partnership with the other member states, we are playing our part in focusing on the position of the elderly and of the challenges of an ageing population for national and Community policies. I am delighted to see so many representatives of our partners in the European Community and even further afield participating in this Conference. To all of you I extend a hearty Cead Mile Failte (hundred thousand welcomes) and hope you will have a very pleasant time in Dublin. I hope that you will find time within the tight time schedule of the Conference to enjoy at least some of the delights of our capital city. I would also like to take this opportunity to express my thanks to the European Commission for its support for the Conference. Brendan Howlin, TD, Minister for Health.
