Rapid Needs Assessment of Older People

Subject/Objective: 

From 16-19 October, HelpAge conducted a rapid needs
assessment of older people (RNA-OP) in the Balukhali 2
camp with our partners Resource Integration Centre (RIC)
and Youth Power in Social Action (YPSA). An early rapid
assessment aims to provide the best possible overview of
the situation and priority needs of older people - given the
data and time available and other constraints, thus
providing key information for planning an initial response
and mobilising additional resources. This report contains
some of the key fi ndings of the RNA-OP, together with
observations and analysis from HelpAge International
Humanitarian Team and advisers.
