Age-based Inequities and Wellbeing

Intensifying concerns about inequities in wellbeing in SSA typically concentrate on gender, ethnicity and rural-urban residence as major axes of inequality. Yet, age may be another important fault line, with older people bearing disproportionate burdens of ill-health, disability (mainly due to non-communicable diseases), illiteracy and poverty compared to younger-aged adults – as well as systematically less access to essential care and social services. We investigate the extent, patterns and determinants of age-based disparities in wellbeing, and the wider impacts of older people’s unmet care needs on families and communities.

Current Project

iagg

The 2nd IAGG Africa Region Conference of Gerontology and Geriatrics

Program: Aging and Development

Taking the form of a structured, evidence-based policy-practice-research dialogue, the conference aims to offer a platform for urgently needed region-wide reflection and debate on the kinds of systems and approaches Africa ought to pursue to meet the need for long-term care and support in its rapidly growing older population. To this end, the conference will bring together an anticipated 100 researchers, service providers, advocates, private sector and government stakeholders in two and a half days of expert panels, open discussion and small group work.
