SDG Delivery for Older Persons and PWDs

HLPF Side Event: SDG Delivery for Older Persons and Persons with Disabilities Post COVID-19

COVID-19 is exposing and deepening the inequalities, discrimination and ageism that older persons and persons with disabilities experience every day.

We need inclusive programmes and policies that address the rights of people of all ages to ensure we leave no one behind.

This official side event to the 2020 High Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development will look at the COVID 19 experience to identify learnings and opportunities to build a more age and disability inclusive world, and accelerate action to achieve the SDGs for all.

Speakers include:

  • Claudia Mahler , Independent Expert on the enjoyment of all human rights by older persons
  • Dr. Alex Kalache , President of the International Longevity Centre Brazil

Date: 7 July 2020, (12:00pm to 1:30pm New York)
