Global Alliance for the Rights of Older People

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. Today, GAROP is a network of over 380 members in around 80 countries worldwide, united in our work to strengthen and promote the rights of older persons. GAROP is governed by a global Steering Group elected by our members and its work is supported by a Secretariat Coordinator.

WHO WE ARE

The mission of the Global Alliance is to support and enhance civil society’s engagement at national, regional and international levels on the need for a new international instrument on the rights of older persons

The Global Alliance for the Rights of Older People seeks a world in which older persons live free from discrimination and are able to fully enjoy their rights.

Our core values are partnership with, inclusion of, and the promotion of participation by older people in decisions that affect their lives. We respect the rights of all persons regardless of age, race, color, disability, gender, language, religion, sexual orientation, political views, national or social origin, class and birth or property status.

  • UNECE Policy Dialogue on Ageing – Mental Health of Older Persons
    14:30 -16:00
    2024.06.18

    A significant share of older persons in the UNECE region is affected by mental disorders and other mental health conditions. Despite this high prevalence, the mental health of older persons often goes unnoticed and many of those in need do not seek and receive treatment. Join us online for a discussion on the prevalence of mental health challenges among older persons, key determinants of mental health in later life and policy strategies for tackling the treatment gap prevalent in the region. We will share key insights and recommendations from UNECE’s forthcoming Policy Brief on the Mental Health of Older Persons and hear first-hand about some of the concrete policy examples and civil society initiatives featured in the brief.

    June 18th, 14:30-16:00 CET.
