HelpAge International is the Secretariat to the HelpAge Global Network, which brings together a wide range of organisations and individuals working to promote the rights and meet the needs of older women and men, nationally and/or internationally.

The HelpAge Global Network has strong roots in global civil society organisations and enormous potential to expand its existing collaboration to form much wider partnerships influencing positive changes for societies in the context of population ageing and for older people themselves. Harnessing the expertise and reach of a recognised global network presents the best opportunity to shape the ageing agenda for the 21st century and accelerate the way that governments, communities and businesses adapt to ageing and the challenges of population ageing.
We aim to extend the reach and influence of the HelpAge Global Network to all those in a position to help bring about our vision for older people.

HelpAge has been working with affiliates and partners in Bangladesh since 1991, initially with projects mostly through national partners focussing on older people’s access to healthcare and income security, including the Old Age Allowance and Widow’s Allowance. Community-based older people’s associations were formed and federated as a type of “older citizens monitoring” of the rights and entitlements provided by government, and also supported the formation of small-scale savings groups.

We set up our Bangladesh country office in 2009, enabling us to step up our drive for improved wellbeing for older people through advocacy and community-programme delivery. We work in several different areas including emergency responses, disaster risk reduction, healthcare, improving older people's access to their rights and entitlements, empowering older people's associations and influencing social pensions policy.
