Global Age Watch Index Report 2013
13th February 2014, Help Age International
Professor Asghar Zaidi
The Global AgeWatch Index 2013 report highlights the connection between social policy and the wellbeing of older people, as well as the huge gaps in international data sets which routinely exclude measuring levels of poverty, HIV prevalence and many others in people over the age of 49.
Population ageing is transforming economies and societies across the world.
HelpAge International's Global AgeWatch Index ranks countries by how well their ageing populations are faring. It is based on four domains that are key enablers of older people's wellbeing: income, health, employment and education, and enabling environment.
