The latest news and features from Age International including updates on the impact of coronavirus (COVID-19) on older people in low-income countries, our work and how you can support older people globally.
Our vision is a world in which women and men everywhere can lead dignified, healthy, and secure lives as they grow older. Our Impact Report shows how we worked to reach this goal in 2020/21.
Globally, older women are contributing unrecognised yet critical support to their families, communities and economies through their paid and unpaid work. Our new report gives voice to older women’s experience of work and sets out recommendations for how to address this inequality.
Across the globe older women, especially in the poorest countries, are facing systemic failures and being let down by their governments and society daily. But it doesn’t have to be this way. Sign our petition now and call on the UK Government to take older women into account.
Age International is working in over 25 countries, reaching communities in Africa, Asia and the Middle East. We're also working hard to ensure older people are treated equally by governments and international organisations who are leading the fight against COVID-19.
Help us to make life better for older people in some of the poorest places.
