Sub-Committee to Promote Human Rights for Older Persons


The Sub-Committee to Promote a Human Rights Instrument for Older Persons has responsibility to engage NGOs in consultative status with ECOSOC (and interested others) to educate ourselves, understand earlier convention strategies, identify and communicate with  helpful partners, and to organize like-minded NGOs in a common effort toward a rights document.  We seek members who will commit significant time, research and focus to this effort.

Chairs: Susan Somers
