WEBINAR: Older Persons, Communities and COVID-19

May 28, 2020 | Academic resources, All posts, Relevant news and stories

HelpAge International along with ESCAP, UNFPA, JAGES and AGAC, is organising a webinar on “Older persons, communities and COVID-19”.

COVID-19 and the attempts to limit its spread challenge all of society and older people in particular. While governments are responsible for the health, well-being and dignity of older persons, communities play an essential role in caring for and supporting those in need.

Videos sharing older people’s experience during COVID-19 will be followed by a conversation about best practices and lessons learned and help identify short- and long-term solutions.

The webinar will be conducted on 4 June 2020 at 3 pm Bangkok time.
