HelpAge has been working with partners in China for more than a decade to improve older people’s financial security, healthcare and social participation.
Our work in Shaanxi and Sichuan provinces aims to tackle the poverty, health and care issues that older people often face. We also strengthen older people’s associations in rural Shaanxi and urban Sichuan to reduce older people’s isolation and build community networks.
With support from the China National Committee on Ageing (CNCA), Shaanxi Provincial Committee on Ageing (SPCA), and HelpAge, Shaanxi Yihe Development Centre on Ageing (SYDCA) was established in 2014. SYDCA carries on history of HelpAge China project office which operated in China since 2003.
SYDCA envisions a society in which older people contribute and participate in development and have rights to live secure, active and healthy lives.
To attain this vision, SYDCA carries the mission to cooperate and collaborate with relevant government agencies such as ageing authorities, civil society organisations, donors and development partners, and individuals to support and facilitate older people’s contribution and participation in development and rights to healthcare, social services and economic and physical security.
Shaanxi Yihe Development Centre on Ageing engages in the following area of works:
