This year’s celebration of the United Nations International Day of Older Persons (UNIDOP) on October 1st is unique in many ways:
  • Nigeria turns 60 on October 1st – the cut off age for  “older person” set by the UN.
  • The Year 2020 marks the 30th anniversary of UNIDOP.
  • 2020 is also the 75th anniversary of the UN.
  • On March 9, 2020, the Elder Friendly Hospitals Initiative (ELDFRHI) was launched in UBTH by the Honorable Minister of Health, Dr. Osagie E. Ehanire.
We are seeking to raise a critical mass of Elder Friendly Champions across all sectors, beginning in our hospitals. Please join us!
