Age Demands Action
Campaigners take action on health
On World Health Day - 7 April - older people will once again stand up for the healthcare issues they believe in and take part in our Age Demands Action on Health campaign.
2015 is a crucial year. The Sustainable Development Goals, which include health, will be decided. We are therefore continuing to voice our call for age-friendly health services.
Find out more about our impact and this year's activities.

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.
