Latin America and the Caribbean

We reach out to help and empower older people across Latin America and the Caribbean through local network members. We help older people to have secure income by advocating for pensions and providing livelihood support, and to have access to the health services they need.

We have established programs and initiatives that address the unique needs of older migrants and refugees. We work closely with individuals, their families, and local communities to provide tailored support that encompasses their economic, social, and health-related concerns.
