The rights of older people in Peru – HelpAge research Summary 2012

Information on the extent to which older people enjoy their human rights in Peru is rarely available or included in the State’s reports to human rights monitoring and accountability mechanisms.

In response to this lack of data, HelpAge International carried out a survey in 2012 with 100 women and men over the age of50 in Peru. This summary illustrates the key findings of the survey. These findings provide evidence on gaps in the protection of older people’s human rights and reinforce the need for national and international action, mechanisms and processes to ensure that the human rights of older people are better addressed.
