Abstract

Old age is often associated with a reduction in abilities and the denial of human rights. One problem that advocates for a proposed Convention on Older Persons have encountered is the overlap between loss of abilities associated with old age and disability. How this debate has played out speaks volumes about how many in the community perceive disability.
