Over last week, the Accountability and Fulfilment For Older People to Raise their Dignity project staff attended an Annual Programme Review and Planning Meeting in Mozambique. 


Among others, the meeting was aimed at reviewing the 6-year programme implementation progress and implementation strategy and reviewing the findings and recommendations of a number of research conducted by the project including but not limited to; research on the Impact of COVID-19 on Older People and Financial, Fuel and Food Crises Research and their impact on the design of the new AFFORD programme and on policy and broader program practice.

The four AFFORD project implementing countries (Malawi, Tanzania, Mozambique, and Ethiopia) were able to share   AFFORD programme achievements and major policy pronouncements and how the programme engaged with stakeholders to influence policy change in their countries.

The AFFORD project is  funded by Irish Aid to support older people to lead secure and healthy lives
