On the fourth anniversary of the Darfur crisis, HelpAge International is calling on humanitarian organisations to adopt an intergenerational approach to the delivery of aid and to building peace and reconciliation initiatives.
HelpAge International is calling on the health delivery organisations to train staff to address the specific health needs of older people.
More than 2 million people have been displaced and many face the prospect that they will not be able to return home.
Responses to humanitarian emergencies on the scale of the Darfur crisis concentrate on meeting immediate basic needs and ensuring the safety and protection of the endangered population. It is well documented that older people, as a vulnerable group, are often neglected or ignored in this initial response. Prolonged violence and displacement present a further challenge to humanitarian agencies, creating longer-term social, economic and psychological needs.
A new report by HelpAge International Rebuilding lives in longer-term emergencies' highlights gaps in emergency responses which have left 55,000 internally displaced older people isolated and without access to basic services.
