HUMAN RIGHTS IN ALGERIA

Rights of Senior Citizens and People with disabilities

Advancing the rights of those most in need of help and support has always been one of the top priorities the Algerian government has set for itself, devoting significant resources to ensure protection of the rights of the disabled and senior citizens and their socioeconomic integration through implementation of a variety of social programs.

Enshrining in 2016 protection of senior citizens and people with disabilities in the Constitution underscores Algeria's strong interest in providing care and support to the most vulnerable members of society.
