Age International is a subsidary of Age UK and a partner to HelpAge International. Internationally, we support programmes in over 40 developing countries to meet the needs of older people and to promote and protect their rights.
In the UK, we work to raise awareness about the needs of older people in developing countries. Our influencing and campaigning work aims to change policies and approaches towards older people, all over the world.
We are all living for longer; by 2050, three quarters of the world’s older population will be living in a developing country. Ageing is a major social, economic, political and development issue for the 21st century. We need to learn to adjust our societies for the reality of significantly older populations – both in the developed and the developing world.
