During the last few years, INFAD Association, together with the commitment participants, has worked on the active and healthy aging from a holistic and integrating perspective, working concretely in the field of Silver Economy, in accessible environments for the elderly, entrepreneurship, etc. In this context, in the course of 2016 we began to work on the subject of adherence of patients in their treatments, opening a first phase of intervention in the field of non-pharmacological therapies. Now, based on the good results obtained in this first approach, we intend to take a step further and approach the field of pharmacological therapies as a second result within the State of the Art of this commitment, before undertaking the elaboration and implementation of the protocol, the main goal of the partnership.
