World Humanitarian Summit
Ensuring global ageing recognised
The Middle East and North Africa consultation for the 2016 World Humanitarian Summit is taking place in Amman, Jordan this week.
We are actively engaged in the process to ensure that the Summit recognises the huge significance of global ageing and the implications for humanitarian action.

Older people's rights
Older people make a huge contribution to society yet suffer discrimination and abuse just because of their age.
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.
