HelpAge International

HelpAge International is an international NGO that helps older people claim their rights, challenge discrimination, and overcome poverty, so that they can lead dignified, secure, active and healthy lives.

Five organisations from Canada, Colombia, Kenya, India and the United Kingdom set up HelpAge International in 1983 to provide a network to support older people worldwide.

HelpAge International now has well over 100 affiliates and works with more than 200 other partners in more than 70 countries.

 HelpAge works for and with older people by: lobbying governments to achieve policy change, undertaking research programmes, and via community projects on the ground. The organisations focuses on issues that affect older people worldwide, such as disaster risk reduction and climate change, rights, health, social protection, HIV and AIDS, and work. HelpAge also works in emergency responses, such as Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines, and the Earthquake in Nepal. HelpAge also campaigns around and influences the Post-2015 Development Agenda.

HelpAge's flagship product is the Global AgeWatch Index, launched in 2013, which ranks countries by how well their aging populations are faring. It is based on four domains that are key enablers of older people's wellbeing: income, health, capabilities, and enabling environments.
