The European Commission and the National Center for the Protection of Older People in Ireland collaborated to produce a background paper looking at elder abuse in Europe from 1975 and on.   The paper, Elder Abuse in Europe, serves as a guide to better understand and tackle elder abuse both on a national and an international level.

IAHSA is interested in learning about programs that help prevent elder abuse and/or provide services to elderly who are victims of abuse.   Please send information on such programs to
