The International Federation on Ageing (IFA) Inequalities Summit, Toronto - August 2018

The International Federation on Ageing (IFA) hosted the Addressing Inequalities Summit, a one-day pre-conference event that took place on August 7th in Toronto, Canada. It was an invitation-only event designed to foster discussion among participants who are interested and committed to eliminating inequalities experienced by older people within marginalized subpopulations.

Our Executive Director, Pamela Ateka, was invited as a panelist speaker at the summit, represented Community Focus Group (CFG), Kenya, and Africa at the summit.

Addressing inequalities was one of four themes that guided conversation during the IFA 14th Global Conference on Ageing. This theme was developed to bring attention to the needs of specific marginalized populations, as society often understates the fact that life experiences significantly impact and at times jeopardies the health and ability of older people to meet their basic needs.
