In June 2015 the Organisation of American States (OAS) signed the Inter-American Convention of Protecting the Human Rights of Older Persons. In order to encourage the implementation of this invaluable legal instrument. It is paramount to promote its ratification in those countries that have not done so. The creation of Monitoring Steering Committee requires a minimum of 10 countries to ratify the Convention. As of September 2021, only 8 Member States have ratified it.
This comic presents an overview of the Convention. Its aim is to inform and create awareness of the benefits of ratification amongst stakeholders and the general population.
This comic is dedicated to yesterday’s, today’s, and tomorrow’s older population.
