Government and Non-Government Organization; Background [and] Issues.
Cottrell, W. Fred; And Others
This paper on Government and Non-Government Organization provides information for leaders concerned with the development of proposals and recommendations for national policy consideration. The first four sections of the paper discuss: the need for changes in the existing organizations and for newly created organizations that would effectively represent the interests of older people; goals for organizations already established; the knowledge available relative to services being performed by both governmental and non-governmental organizations; and the identifiable gaps and limitations in organized efforts to meet the needs of the elderly. The fifth section of the paper presents issues formulated to focus discussion on the development of recommendations toward the adoption of national policies aimed at meeting the organizational needs of the older population.
