Since 1988, HelpAge International has worked across Asia to improve older people’s lives and raise awareness about the issues that affect them.

We advocate for and help implement social protection schemes that provide older people with secure incomes. We work hard to ensure older people can access the health and care services they need. We support older people’s associations where older people socialise, organise and address the needs of their local community. We help older people affected by natural disasters and conflict, and limit the impact of these emergencies by ensuring communities are prepared.
