Join us and our network of grantees and colleagues in empowering older people and our communities this World Elder Abuse Awareness Day (WEAAD) June 15.
WEAAD was launched by the International Network for the Prevention of Elder Abuse (INPEA) and the World Health Organization at the United Nations to provide an opportunity for communities around the world to promote a better understanding of abuse and neglect of older people by raising awareness of the cultural, social, economic and demographic processes affecting elder abuse and neglect, and to acknowledge the significance of elder abuse as a public health and human rights issue.
WEAAD is a call-to-action for society’s individuals, organizations, and communities to educate each other on how to identify, address and prevent abuse so we can all do our part to support everyone as we age.
