International day for older persons
The number of people over 70 is projected to rise to 10 per cent of the world’s population by 2050. Social protection is key to ensure older people’s well-being, dignity and rights, while also supporting their families. In addition to pensions, it is essential that better access to adequate long-term care is provided to meet older people’s needs.
The COVID-19 pandemic has revealed and exacerbated the social protection gap between countries with high and low income levels.
