International Day of Older Persons

Older people have always played a significant role in society, as leaders, caretakers and custodians of tradition. Yet they are also highly vulnerable, with many falling into poverty, becoming disabled or facing discrimination.  As health care improves, the population of older people is growing. Their needs are also growing, as are their contributions to the world. UNFPA is supporting research into the phenomenon of global ageing, and is promoting the adoption of policies that support older people and meet their needs.
