We empower older people in Africa in a whole range of ways.
For instance, we share information with our partners and advise on ageing issues.
We fight for older people's needs and rights to be placed right at the heart of policy and legislation.
We also help older people take action to curb the impact and spread of HIV and AIDS.
Knowledge from across the region is gathered on AgeAfrica.net - explore the website for news, resources and events on key issues including income, health and care, and violence and abuse.

Supporting older people in Africa
- In Uganda, we have established older people's groups to help them find out about their rights and empower them to lobby local authorities.
- In Ethiopia, we have provided cash transfers to 960 older people affected by the current drought so their basic needs are met.
- In the villages where we work in Tanzania, we have cut the number of murders related to witchcraft accusations by 90%
- In South Africa, we have secured transport for over 8,000 older people so they can get to health clinics.
