The National Strategy for Ageing in Somalia, developed by the Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs with support from ESCWA, sets out a vision to build a society for all ages that ensures ageing with dignity. The Older Persons’ Act guarantees the rights of older persons to lead dignified, autonomous and independent lives in Somalia. The National Strategy on Ageing and the Older Persons’ Act have been reviewed and revised based on feedback from governmental stakeholders.

This workshop offers a platform to discuss and validate these two documents before adopting them in their final versions.
