The Philippine Plan of Action for Older Persons (PPAOP 1999-2004) and the 2006-2010 Plan of Action for Senior Citizens provided the perspective used in developing this inter-agency plan for older persons. This plan addresses the need to institute appropriate policies, strategies, mechanisms and programs/projects to ensure that 1) senior citizen’s rights are upheld, 2) their needs and concerns are addressed, and 3) their roles as active participants in nation building are fully recognized.
