The Conference "Status of the Older Population: Prelude to the 21st Century" was held from 13 to 15 December 1999 in Sion, Switzerland. It was organized by the Population Unit of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) in collaboration with the US National Institute on Aging (NIA), the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) and the Institut Universitaire Kurt Bosch (IKB).
