Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, global leaders in civil society have come together to address the devastating and ongoing impacts to the lives and functioning of older people. Going beyond the immediate emergency response and informing effective long-term policy frameworks will require sustained efforts and a unified voice to respond to the needs of older people. As the Chair of the NGO Committee on Ageing in Geneva, Ms. Silvia Perel-Levin shares in this IFA Virtual Town Hall good practices in advocating for the recognition of the rights of older people on the global scale.
