    The 1991 International Symposium was convened from September 4 to 6, in Rockville, Maryland, as a follow-onto a 1988 symposium. The 1988 symposium focused on developing a research agenda on measuring health and health care for the elderly in a standard manner to permit valid comparisons across nations, The theme of the 1991 Symposium was “Meeting the Challenges of an Aging World.” Its purpose was to share the interim results of the research agenda from the 1988 sympaslum and to review the goals for the next few years. Speakers and participants were distinguished international experts from a dozen different countries and a variety of organizations. They were selected for their expertise in the five topics addressed by the International Symposium: health promotion, vitality, functional disability, outcomes of nursing home care, and common chronic diseases.
