We've made strong progress in the past year.
Together with our partners, we're helping millions of older people lead more dignified, active, healthy and secure lives.

Making change last
Over the past year, we have continued to influence governments and international institutions to address older people's issues and promote their rights.
For example, we were active in seeing older people health needs included in the UN Summit on Non-communicable Diseases, and we continued to call for a UN convention on the rights of older people through the UN Open-ended Working Group on Ageing.
We have put ageing at the centre of the development agenda through our research, technical training to governments and other agencies, and support to our network.
This helped to secure incomes for older people, provide pensions and include older people in humanitarian assistance. We also raised awareness of ageing issues to 50 million people through our global Age Demands Action campaign.
