Between 2019 and 2030, the number of people over the age of 60 is projected to grow by nearly 40%, from 1 billion to 1.4 billion, globally outnumbering youth. This increase will be the greatest and the most rapid in the developing world, and recognizing that greater attention needs to be paid to the specific challenges affecting the older population.
June 15 marks World Elder Abuse Awareness Day, a global initiative dedicated to raising awareness about the abuse and neglect experienced by older adults. It serves as a reminder of our collective responsibility to protect and support our seniors, ensuring they live with dignity and respect. This day calls for action and advocacy to address the pressing issue of elder abuse and promote a society that values and safeguards the well-being of older individuals.
