Human Rights Day
Diversity of discrimination
To mark Human Rights Day today, we have published research revealing the diversity of discrimination faced by older people.
We carried out surveys in Mozambique, Peru and Kyrgyzstan to ask older people about their experiences.
The majority had experienced at least one form of discrimination including violence, abuse, neglect and denial of certain rights, such as healthcare.

Working with older people: Practical guidelines
Do you work with older people in the developing world? Need practical information on how to tailor programmes to older people's needs?
We have new practical guidelines for programme managers and people working with older people, drawing on experience in the HelpAge network.
Please use the guidelines for your own work, training or as a basis for producing more detailed, locally relevant materials.
