Ageing in Developing Countries

Ageing & Development

The Ageing & Development programme works on issues facing older people in developing countries, such as income insecurity, access to pensions and social protection, access to health care, age discrimination and the inclusion of older people policies and programmes.


Age Action has for many years partnered with HelpAge International.  We currently work together on an Irish Aid funded project, in Ethiopia, Malawi, Mozambique and Tanzania.

On Thursday October 29th at 10.30am we will be joined from Malawi by Thokozani who works with Concern.  Thokozani will talk about ageing in Malawi, Covid and how Concern programmes support the 65+ age group.

In December 2016, the Irish government joined 192 other countries across the world in signing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). They are a collection of 17 goals that aim to change our world into a fairer, healthier, and happier place for everyone by 2030. The focus of our webinar will be around SDG 3 – Good Health and Well-Being

Everyone is welcome to join, so please tell your friends and family.
