Age Demands Action
Age Demands Action (ADA) is a global grassroots campaign to fight age discrimination and combat the perception that older people are not important.
ADA activities take place throughout the year; but 1 October is the United Nations International Day of Older Persons and a key date for the campaign.
On this day, older people in countries across the world take part in activities to make sure their voices are heard.
They talk to their governments on issues that affect older people such as social protection, healthcare, housing or access to work.
HelpAge Cambodia supports older people to meet with local authorities and development partners to develop and implement old age friendly policies and programmes.
HelpAge Cambodia staff call for a UN Convention for the Rights of Older People
