New Guide Highlights Needs of Older People in Developing Countries

Age Action Ireland has launched a new guide on the special needs of older people in developing countries. The guide is aimed at development organisations and its purpose is to stir debate on the issues affecting older people in countries that are massively affected by chronic poverty, HIV/ AIDS, and where, at the same time, populations are ageing at a massive rate.

The guide has been produced as part of an Ageing and Development Programme undertaken by Age Action Ireland with support from HelpAge International and funding from Irish Aid.
