Samuel Hall and HelpAge International have agreed to add a short country report brief focused on the impact of COVID-19 on Afghanistan’s elderly population to a multi-partner series sponsored by UNFPA and coordinated by HelpAge International. Samuel Hall’s contribution is independent and entirely self-funded. The overall objective of this series is to broadly monitor, document, analyse and share how the situation of older people in Asia changes in 2020 as a result of COVID-19, in order to inform programmatic responses and policy advice, post-pandemic. The methodology is geared towards collecting and analysing a wide range of secondary evidence from multiple sources. Given the regional nature of the task and the current risks associated with travel and gatherings, no fieldwork (primary data collection) will be included, nor original data analysis. However, Samuel Hall may report findings from fieldwork and data analysis carried out by others.
