These country profiles map the situation of older persons in five countries in the Arab region: Palestine, Iraq, Tunisia, Saudi Arabia and Egypt. The profiles were developed by HelpAge International with support from UNFPA Arab States Regional Office. They shed light on the situation of older women and men in relation to income, health, education, autonomy and safety, and highlight how national systems and strategies on ageing people address their needs and rights in these areas. The aim of these country profiles is to help monitor the progress achieved towards older persons’ inclusion in the Sustainable Development Goals, and identify opportunities to strengthen national strategies and data.
