Description

HelpAge USA works with our global network of affiliates and partners to implement programs and policies that improve the lives of older people in the world's poorest communities. We ensure that older people are included in international development and have access to emergency relief, income security, health services and basic human rights.

HelpAge International works in over 65 countries with more than 100 Affiliates and 180 other partners across all continents. We have six regional development centres and offices in London, UK and Brussels, Belgium from which we support our work around the world.

In the past year,we have helped 624,000 more older people receive new or better pensions and benefits, worth $258 million more a year.

We have also supported 673,000 older people to receive health, HIV or care services across 30 countriesand 230,000 older people and their families to receive emergency relief and recovery support.

The HelpAge vision is of a world in which all older people fulfill their potential to lead dignified, active, healthy and secure lives. HelpAge is driven by a fundamental understanding that older people have the wisdom and the personal drive to contribute to their own wellbeing and to that of their families. We work globally to ensure that people everywhere understand how much older people contribute to society and that they must enjoy their right to healthcare, social services and economic and physical security.
