Social protection

International day for older persons

  1. Social protection and long term care for an ageing population

    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.
