Loneliness and social isolation among older people in the eastern Europe and central Asia region

Publication

This report is the result of a multinational survey on loneliness among older people that was carried out—under sometimes challenging conditions due to the COVID-19 pandemic—in six countries/territories in Eastern Europe and the South Caucasus during the summer of 2021. The survey was implemented under the technical leadership of Professor Tara Keck of University College London and the organizational leadership of Zeljko Blagojevic of UNFPA Bosnia and Herzegovina. The UNFPA country offices in the respective countries and territories were intensively involved in organizing fieldwork and providing comments, while the UNFPA Regional Office for Eastern Europe and Central Asia coordinated the process and produced this report. We would like to express our appreciation to all those who contributed to the success of this exercise, including the respondents to the survey and the participants in the focus group meetings.
