The Ministry of Social Security is instituting a framework for the implementation of the Revised National Policy for Senior Citizens.
Minister Karl Samuda says the policy should strengthen the capacity of the National Council for Senior Citizens to deal with matters affecting the elderly.
He says the ministry will be engaging stakeholders to deliver, monitor and evaluate programmes and initiatives.
Minister Samuda was addressing the launch of National Senior Citizens Week on Wednesday.
The Revised National Policy for Senior Citizens is available on the Ministry's website and seeks to promote an environment that facilitates, guarantees, enhances and protects the rights of senior citizens.
