About this book

&i;`This timely report by HelpAge International sets out to establish some of the key social and political issues affecting older people's lives. It marks the first documentation of this information and I feel sure that it will be an important contribution to the growing debate.'&o; From the Foreword by Gro Harlem Brundtland, Director-General, World Health Organization

This landmark report argues convincingly that older people are a resource for all our futures, whose rights must be respected and whose contributions acknowledged in all that we do. With great clarity, its authors describe the realities of older people's lives and the many options facing research, policy and practice. It deserves to be widely-read and heeded. -- Michael Edwards, Senior Civil Society Specialist, The World Bank, and Director-Designate, Governance and Civil Society, The Ford Foundation
