We believe that the contribution older people make to society is invaluable. Yet older people remain some of the poorest and most neglected in the world. We are committed to helping them claim their rights, challenge discrimination and overcome poverty.
Our vision and mission:
Our vision is of a world in which all older people can lead dignified, active, healthy and secure lives. We work with our partners 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.

The Disaster Risk and Age Index 2015 is a pilot initiative
by HelpAge International which presents a unique snapshot of the disaster risk
faced by older people in 190 countries across the world.
It highlights which countries are doing the most to reduce
the vulnerabilities and boost the capacities of their older
populations in the face of disaster risk.
