HelpAge works with older people to push governments to make policies that improve their lives.
We are determined that governments and other NGOs include older people in their policies and programmes. Our areas of policy focus are:
DRR & Climate change
We're listening to older people's advice on dealing with shocks and stresses, and getting their voices heard. Read more about our work on disaster risk reduction (DRR) and climate change adaptation.
Our humanitarian policy work ensures that older people are visible and included in humanitarian relief efforts.
We're urging health providers to be prepared for the challenges that global ageing brings. Find out how we're pushing for policies to improve healthcare for older people.
HIV and AIDS
We're protecting older people's right to a secure income and helping them to get a decent pension. Read more about our social protection work.
We have a wealth of evidence-based policy and research reports.
