MetadataShow full item record
The United Nations have projected that there will be more than 2 billion elder population in the world by 2050. In order to prepare the affected countries for the huge increase in elder population, the United Nations had initiated various international documents emphasising on the wellbeing of the elderly. Malaysia and Bangladesh have been influenced by these international documents in tackling elder issues including abuse. Both countries have introduced strategies in preventing elder abuse through policy and legal framework. This paper highlights and examines the issue of elder abuse and the strategies undertaken by both countries to overcome the issue.
