Our contribution is based on information gathered by our members and, as far as possible, country-specific information is provided to illustrate the regional situation and respond to the request of the OHCHR for reference to specific legislation, strategies and policies at the national level. Our contribution stressed the additional challenges for older people's rights due to the ongoing crisis.
