In most of these approaches, we have bilateral cooperation with State Welfare Organization.

The representative of the United Nations Population Fund pointed to the approach and approach taken by the Welfare Organization regarding the elderly and said: "This approach is very special and valuable, given that the government of the Islamic Republic in recent years has been able to Approve, has made valuable moves and action.
