March 1 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am ACSTFree
“The timing is critical and now is the time to act decisively and strategically!”
Dr Kiran Rabheru, New Chair of the Global Alliance for the Rights of Older People
COVID-19 has focused the eyes of the world on the experiences of older people like no other event in recent history. With this momentous shock comes a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to call out elder abuse and ageism globally, and improve fairness, rights and dignity in later life.
Join our expert international panel to hear how COVID-19 shines a light on ageism and elder abuse in our communities and institutions, and the social, economic and rights-based tools we can use to combat elder abuse.
“You owe it to your loved ones and your future self to be at this event.”
