Country Support

Country Support

Our Country Support Initiative provides an avenue through which Global Ageing Network members can build supporting relationships with others in need of resources for use in carrying out their mission of care for the elderly.

The Country Support Initiative was conceived during IAHSA’s 8th International Conference in London in July 2009 when providers from Australia met Marigold Mncube, Matron of the Emseni Old Age Home in South Africa and spontaneously formed a ‘fund raising’ event to support Emseni. Since that time, a number of initiatives have evolved.

The Global Ageing Network’s role is to facilitate connections between interested parties, on a country-to-country level.
