The new Global AgeWatch Index launches on 1 October 2014.

The Index measures how well 96 countries are supporting their older populations.

In a world in which the number of older people will more than double by 2050, it puts a spotlight on how different countries are responding to people's right to a secure income in later life.

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.

The guidelines cover topics including emergencies, HIV and AIDS, rights and advocacy and health and care.
