Event Details

The theme of this year's International Day of Older Persons (IDOP) is Journey to Age Equality.

Read blog on the "International Day of Older Persons and Opportunity in the Aging Trend" by Jean Accius, Senior Vice President, AARP Thought Leadership & International.

This year, AARP joins HelpAge USA  in a campaign to debunk ageist myths, stereotypes about people based solely on their age. We need your voice to help set the record straight.

Leading up to the United Nations event for IDOP on October 10, HelpAge and organizations across the HelpAge Global Network will shed light on where ageism happens, the forms it can take, and why people of all ages are worse off because of it.
