Needs of the Older Person

ICJW recognises the particular needs of the older person, and its representatives are participants in the United Nations' NGO Committees on Ageing in Vienna and New York. 

ICJW affiliates are encouraged to initiate and participate in programs designed to prevent and alleviate mental and financial abuse, physical violence, and social discrimination against the older person, and to petition their governments to ensure that adequate pension provisions are made for senior citizens.
