Fighting elder abuse in health and long-term care - AGE joint event
Thursday, 16 June 2016

Taking place on the 16th June, the European Commission are organising jointly with the Council of Europe, AGE Platform Europe and the European Network of National Human Rights Institutions (ENNHRI) a high-level conference to raise awareness of elder abuse in Europe. Marking World Elder Abuse Awareness Day, the event will promote a better understanding of the abuse and neglect of older persons by drawing attention to this escalating human rights challenge.

The overall purpose is to highlight to policymakers, civil society actors, health and social care professionals, researchers, human rights bodies and local/regional authorities how inequalities, stereotypes and the lack of a rights-based approach in the provision of health and long-term care increase the risk of maltreatment and neglect of older persons. To achieve these aims, existing legal and policy frameworks will be considered to identify good practices, and the delivery of effective responses to tackle elder abuse will be addressed.
