Invite you to attend a joint event marking the World Elder Abuse Awareness Day 2016
Fighting elder abuse in health and long-term care
Thursday 16th June 2016, 10:00-16:30
The European Commission, the Council of Europe, AGE Platform Europe and the European Network of National Human Rights Institutions (ENNHRI) are co-organising for a third year a conference that aims to raise awareness of how inequalities, stereotypes and the lack of a rights-based approach in the provision of health and long-term care increase the risk of maltreatment and neglect of older persons. This joint event will present relevant developments aiming to combat elder abuse in the area of health and long-term care, including research, legislation, policy and grassroots initiatives. It will also highlight the importance of institutional and stakeholders cooperation in delivering an effective response to the fight against elder abuse, as an integral part of health and long-term care policies.
The conference will include a number of high-level speakers and will be of interest to all stakeholders in the health and long-term care sectors: policy makers at all levels and EU institutions, civil society actors, health professionals, researchers, human rights bodies, local and regional authorities, etc.
