Convention on older people's rights
To mark World Elder Abuse Awareness Day on 15 June, HelpAge has published new research revealing the high levels of violence and abuse experienced by older people around the world.
In 30 countries worldwide, older campaigners took part in the Age Demands Action for Rights campaign to encourage their governments to attend the UN Open-ended Working Group on Ageing where a new UN convention on the rights of older people is being discussed.

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?
