Promote the right of all older people to lead dignified, healthy and secure lives.

type: Campaign, NGO
by: Murat Suner

Did you know how fast the world's population is aging? By 2030, there will be more people over 60 than under 10.

HelpAge International, a global network of organisations, set out to promote the right of all older people to lead dignified, healthy, and secure lives.

Their value-based position puts the experience of older women and men at the center of their work.

The organisation works with older women and men in low and middle-income countries, promotes better services and policies concerning their needs, and advocates for changes in the behaviours and attitudes of individuals and societies towards old-age.

The world HelpAge wants is one where every older woman and man, everywhere, can say:

"I have the income I need"; "I enjoy the best possible health and quality of life"; "I am safe and secure, free from discrimination and abuse", "My voice is heard".

Join or support their campaign by sharing their valuable work on the occasion of UN International Day of Older Persons October 1st, 2018.
