Webinar Presentation - Social protection responses to COVID-19: Actions that can make a difference for older people
Slide presentation of the webinar held on 9 April 2020. As governments and partners are scaling-up their responses, existing guidance, planning, and implementation often do not sufficiently capture the risks and challenges faced by older people in the context of COVID-19. The webinar has attempted to fill these knowledge gaps, focusing on social protection and health care in lower- and middle-income countries. Speakers presented concrete guidelines on how Governments can minimize the risk of infection for older people during manual pension payments while continuing to ensure the income security of older people and their dependents in this crisis.
