Overview

This publication builds on the knowledge of the situation of older persons in our region at a time unlike any other in the subject’s history in the framework of the United Nations.

The book also identifies and proposes tools for analysis and action with regard to public institutions, and for detailed examination of the guarantees needed to ensure equality in old age.
