International Federation on Ageing Nigeria (IFAN)

The International Federation of Ageing-Nigeria (IFAN) is a non-governmental organization. IFAN advocates for the right of elderly people and ensures to better their living conditions in Nigeria. The organization strongly believes it is no longer possible to ignore ageing regardless of whether one views it positively or negatively.

It strives to recommend appropriate ageing policies to public authorities. Commemorating the 2012 World Health Day, IFAN called on the federal government to enunciate for the country an elaborate policy on ageing for the next years.

Due to their humanitarian experience and the respect given to senior citizens in Nigeria, IFAN is recognized as a platform to effectively promote other strong values within the country such as peace, non-violence, dialogue or tolerance.
