Established in 2011, the Global Alliance for the Rights of Older People was born out of the need to strengthen the rights and voice of older people globally.
Age discrimination and ageism are tolerated across the world, and older people experience discrimination and the violation of their rights at family, community and institutional levels.
The International Federation on Ageing (IFA) will hold its 14th Global Conference on Ageing in Toronto from 8-10th August 2018. GAROP is proud to be a conference partner for this event.
In Our Own Words is a new report from the Global Alliance for the Rights of Older People (GAROP) in which older people talk about the ageism, discrimination and denial of human rights that they are subjected to in their everyday life.
