AGE calls for disability policies to include older persons with functional limitations

To mark the International Day of Persons with Disabilities on 3rd December, AGE Platform Europe sent a press release to draw attention to the specific barriers faced by older persons with disabilities to their full and equal participation in society.

AGE calls for disability policies, including the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNCRPD), to also address inequalities against older persons with functional limitations.

We also used the occasion of the UN Day to launch our new online toolkit to promote the rights of older persons in need of care. You can read more on this toolkit in this article.
