United Nations World Elder Abuse Awareness Day – 15 June 2023

United Nations

The UN predicts that between 2019 and 2030, the number of persons aged 60 years or over is projected to grow by 38%, from 1 billion to 1.4 billion. This means globally people aged over 60 will outnumber youth, and this increase will be the greatest and the most rapid in the developing world. The UN is urging greater attention be paid to the specific challenges affecting older persons, including in the field of human rights.
