Healthy ageing toolkit

IFRC, 21 November 2016

By 2050, the number of individuals aged 60 years or above will have tripled from 600 million in 2000 to two billion; 80 per cent of them will live in low-  or middle-income countries. While these statistics highlight the scale of the challenge society faces, an ageing population provides countless opportunities. Older people are, and will continue to be, vital assets to their families, friends and communities. The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) continues to call for the eradication of all forms of ageism that deny older people dignity, decrease access to care and the right to a just quality of life.

Beyond Ebola: from dignified response to dignified recovery

IFRC, 14 January 2016
800kb

Ebola is no stranger to Africa but, for the past year and a half, a West African epidemic has forced us all to rethink how we should respond to health emergencies. Unless the lessons learned in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone are put into universal practice, the virus disease will return – and a repetition does not bear thinking about.
