  2. Towards Universal Social Security for the Elderly in Mozambique

    14 October 2019

    In Mozambique, social assistance for the elderly is a right enshrined in the Constitution of the Republic. Mozambique currently has 1.25 million elderly people, which corresponds to 4.5% of the population.
