Our vision is a world in which all older people can lead dignified, healthy and secure lives.
Our mission is to promote the wellbeing and inclusion of older women and men, and reduce poverty and discrimination in later life.
Our role is to work with older women and men in low and middle-income countries for better services and policies, and for changes in the behaviours and attitudes of individuals and societies towards old age.
We have four main goals. The world we want is one where every older woman and man, everywhere, can say:
I have the income I need
I enjoy the best possible health and quality of life
I am safe and secure, free from discrimination and abuse
My voice is heard
