The Impact of COVID 19 on the Human Rights of Older Persons: An International Perspective - OEWG11 Ageing Side Event
30 Mar 2021 -  The COVID-19 pandemic has had a horrendous impact on older people across the globe. The flagrant violation of human right of older persons is exemplified by, but not limited to, skyrocketing cases of elder abuse, the loss of the right to health, the loss of social protections, the loss of autonomy and the horrific death rates in Long Term Care. The International Longevity Centre of Canada is hosting a side event with eminent aging experts and United Nations Ambassadors to discuss the issue and to look for meaningful responses to protect the human rights of older persons and to ensure that what we have seen in the pandemic never happens again.
