Three years on
It's been three years since the war began in Syria. Around 72,000 Syrian refugees are aged over 60.
A forthcoming survey shows that 54% of older Syrian refugees living in Jordan and Lebanon have a chronic disease, such as diabetes. However, medication is often hard to access.
We're helping 1,900 older refugees in Jordan and Lebanon with cash transfers and working to ensure aid is age-friendly.

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.
