On 14 December 1990, the United Nations General Assembly, in its resolution 45/106, designates 1st October as International Day of Older Persons, following initiatives such as the International Action Plan of Viena on Ageing, adopted by the World Assembly on Ageing celebrated in 1982, and supported the same year by the General Assembly of the United Nations.

In 1991 the General Assembly in its resolution 46/91 adopted the United Nations Principles for Older Persons.

In 2002 the Second World Assembly about Ageing approved the International Action Plan of Madrid about Ageing to respond to the opportunities and the challenges of the ageing of the 21st century population, and to promote the development of a society suitable for all ages.
