Aging and Development

The Life-course Perspective

As important as considering the circumstances of SSA’s current older population are efforts to invest in and optimize the future health and capacity of future cohorts of older people – i.e. today’s children, youth and younger-aged adults. We generate a fuller appreciation of the life course determinants that will shape the risk of disease and functional limitations in later life.

Featured Project

Realities of provision and receipt of long-term care for older adults in urban slums

Program: Aging and Development

Drawing on survey data collected in two urban slum communities in Nairobi, this project seeks to generate novel evidence and understandings of current arrangements of long-term care (LTC) provision to older people with significant losses in physical or mental capacity, the levels of unmet need for, and adequacy of the care provided; perceived impacts of care constellations on the well-being of caregivers and care recipients; and normative attitudes regarding the relative roles of family- versus organized LTC provision.  Study findings will offer an important contribution to global- and incipient African scientific and policy debates on required approaches for forging equitable and sustainable systems of quality long-term care provision.

PROJECT PERIOD: March 2018 – June 2019
