Background: The effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on mental health have been understudied among vulnerable populations, particularly in fragile and conflict-affected settings. We aimed to analyse how the pandemic is related to early changes in mental health and parenting stress among caregivers, many of whom are internally displaced persons (IDP), in a conflict-affected setting in Colombia. Methods: For this cohort study, we used longitudinal data from a psychosocial support programme in which 1376 caregivers were randomly assigned across four sequential cohorts.
This study supports SDGs 3 and 10 by quantifying gender differences in the ageing experience of people in Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) countries; in every country, key domains of societal ageing favour men, with older women at a disproportionately greater risk of chronic diseases and disability. This study highlights policy gaps and priorities for resource allocation to improve the ageing experience of older people in OECD countries.
This area of research represents a new therapeutic paradigm that could add functional years of life to individuals who would otherwise develop dementia.

This Article addresses SDG 3 and 5 by using a multidimensional metric to assess gender differences in domains of successful societal ageing in Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development countries. The findings show that across all domains, men are advantaged, although the difference between genders in index scores varied between countries. These findings could be informative for policy makers, both in identifying specific gender disparities to address, and in learning from countries with more successful societal ageing.
