We help and empower older people in Africa. We support older people to have secure incomes by advocating for pensions and providing livelihoods support. We ensure older people access the health services they need. We fight for older people's needs and rights to be placed right at the heart of policy and legislation.
Knowledge from across southern Africa is gathered on the website AgeAfrica.net.
