HelpAge International to Join IAHSA in Perth

BY GlobalAgeing

HelpAge Plenary speaker Meredith Wyse has been working with HelpAge International for over ten years and is currently Strategic Development Manager for the East Asia Region based in Thailand. Her focus is on community development and home and community based care in the region. She has developed training programmes for regional governments as they develop comprehensive policies and programmes on care. Meredith Wyse will speak about the evolution of aged care in less developed countries and what we can learn from their experiences.

HelpAge International, a long-standing partner of IAHSA, has been leading the efforts to help elders in Nepal in the wake of the recent earthquakes. It had humanitarian workers and supplies on the ground within hours and have worked tirelessly since. HelpAge’s presence has ensured that older people are not overlooked in the aftermath of natural disasters.
