• Older Persons
      Across the globe, the number of persons aged 60 and over is expanding at an unprecedented rate, estimated to reach 1 billion by the end of the decade.  Currently, there are too few protection mechanisms and too many gaps in policies and programs that protect the rights of this rising population. Two-thirds of today’s older persons live in low- and middle-income regions. They are a diverse group and thus face discrimination in various forms, such as ethnicity, socio-economic status, sex, health status, or physical ability.
