The Association was set up on 12 February 1998. Its objects and reasons are to promote professional and educational advancement of gerontologists and geriatricians. The Association places great emphasis on research-based mutual education by and of its own members throughout the world. It also stresses the importance of considering all the aspects of the elderly person, namely: physical, social, economic and psychological. The Association is also a forum for considering every aspect of ageing both locally and internationally. The Association also has its own quarterly newsletter.
It conducts bi-monthly seminars and lectures for its members on various aspects of ageing. Once a year, MAGG conducts a one day Gerontology and Geriatrics National Seminar to which all those involved in the field of ageing or working with older persons are invited to participate.
During these Seminars, past students of Gerontology and Geriatrics present the results of their research work in various aspects of ageing which was carried out during their reading for the Postgraduate Diploma in Gerontology and Geriatrics.
On 17 December 1999, the Association was accepted as a full member of the International Association of Gerontology, the World body in the field of ageing representing the global gerontological community containing member organisations from over the five continents. Following this, on 7 January 2000, MAGG became the 33rd Member of the European Association of Gerontology.
