COVID-19: Rapid Needs Assessment of older people – Adjumani Refugee Settlement, Uganda

Older people, especially older refugees, remain one of the most at risk groups in Uganda, both from COVID-19 and from pre-existing risks. Uganda hosts the third-largest refugee population in the world, and the largest in Africa. Therefore, to assess the needs of older refugees, HelpAge International conducted a rapid needs assessment in Adjumani Refugee Settlement in northern Uganda on the border with South Sudan in July.
