[Correspondence] Against age discrimination

Representatives of the European Union Geriatric Medicine Society (EUGMS) in conjunction with Members of the European Parliament devoted to issues in care of elderly people would like to express a strong statement against ageism around the UN formulated Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for 2030.1 According to basic fundamental rights, age, sex, or ethnic background are not well founded or justified grounds to put anyone in a less favourable position. A solid basis exists for prevention and treatment of disease (geriatric medicine) in people aged 70 years or older.
