HelpAge APRO, the Asia Pacific Regional Office for HelpAge International is located in Chiang Mai. The office is one of four global hubs, leading on regional projects, supporting work in country offices and serving as secretariat of the regional HelpAge Network in its work to build understanding and commitments to respond to the challenges and opportunities that rapid population ageing creates.
The regional office works to influence government policy development and implementation in relation to health and care, older peoples’ organisations, social pensions, disaster risk reduction, and other aspects of adaptation to population ageing. It also responds to humanitarian crises in the region.
The regional office leads on multi-country projects in the region including current projects on strengthening CSO capacity and community-led development models; inclusive disaster risk reduction; and technical assistance to governments on long-term care system development. A new four-year regional project, Scaling-Up NCD Interventions in South-East Asia, will start 01 January 2019. This EC funded project works with a consortium of European and Asian academic partners to conduct research on NCD interventions in Indonesia, Myanmar and Vietnam, in order to inform evidence-based policy making on strengthening health systems. The research will focus on the question: “Will synergies between community-based activities and primary health care services enhance impact on health?” It will build on existing interventions including macro-level (e.g. inclusion of NCD essential medications in health insurance coverage) and micro-level (e.g. HelpAge’s older people’s association model). Research will be conducted to support scaling up by examining these questions:
HelpAge’s role in the consortium is 1) to lead on the communications, impact and dissemination work package of the project; 2) to coordinate all work in Vietnam and Myanmar; and 3) to facilitate research on the community-based older people’s association models.
To provide overall coordination for HelpAge’s work on SUNI-SEA across four offices; to be the focal-point for liaising with other SUNI-SEA consortium members; to manage APRO’s work for the project
