The WHO Falls Prevention for Active Ageing model provides an action plan for making progress in reducing the prevalence of falls in the older adult population. By building on the three pillars of falls prevention, the model proposes specific strategies for: 1. building awareness of the importance of falls prevention and treatment; 2. improving the assessment of individual, environmental, and societal factors that increase the likelihood of falls; and 3. for facilitating the design and implementation of culturally-appropriate, evidence-based interventions that will significantly reduce the number.
