Gerontology in and out of Africa

  • Monica Ferreira Editor, Southern African Journal of Gerontology


Some of the most exciting new gerontology globally is coming out of Africa. African gerontology has reached a stage in its development to earn it a respected and unique place in the global ageing arena. It is apt that it should be a part of the African renaissance, and is attracting a surge of interest and curlosity from gerontologists in numerous countries.
