HelpAge International is a global network of organisations promoting the right of all older people to lead dignified, healthy and secure lives.
We have a strong, value-based position which puts the experience of older women and men at the centre of our work.
Our role is to work with older women and men in low and middle-income countries for better services and policies, and for changes in the behaviours and attitudes of individuals and societies towards old age.
The world we want is one where every older woman and man, everywhere, can say:
- "I have the income I need"
- "I enjoy the best possible health and quality of life"
- "I am safe and secure, free from discrimination and abuse"
- "My voice is heard"
To work towards our vision and mission for a better world for older men and women, we are guided by our Strategy to 2020.
