Summary
A collection of indepth ethnographic analysis on the impact of local and global transformations on the care, or lack of care, received by older people in SubSaharan Africa. This book provides the panAfrican evidence and analysis needed to move forward debates about who and how to address the long term care needs of this vulnerable population. Case studies from different regions of the continent (Southern, Central, East and West Africa) examine formal and informal care, including inter and intragenerational care, retirement homes, care in the context of poverty, HIV/AIDS and migration
