Dedicated to promoting the interests of the elderly, the non-governmental organisation (NGO) "50+Hellas" provides information on issues such as employment, social policies, health, and a variety of other subjects of interest to anyone over 50 years of age.
The NGO is a member of AGE-Platform Europe, a network of 144 older people’s organisations representing 25 million members and involved in influencing EU policy affecting older citizens.
On the occasion of World Elder Abuse Awareness Day yesterday, the Department of Sociology at the National School of Public Health co-hosted a conference (14.6) on elderly abuse awareness with "50+ Hellas."
President of AGE-Platform Europe, Dr. Liz Mesthenos, presented the aims of the European Charter for older people to help prevent abuse.
