African Foundation for Research and Interdisciplinary Training in Ageing

  • Adrian Wilson Director, AFRITA

Abstract

Wilson and Adamchak identified a need to link research and training initiatives with policy structures in African countries, to evolve an holistic model of care for older people in the sub-continent.I am now able to announce that the African Foundation for Research and Interdisciplinary Training in Ageing (AFRITA) is shortly to be established as a non-profit-making trust, based in Harare, Zimbabwe. The purpose of the foundation will be to promote, maintain and link training and research in ageing to policy development, within Africa, for the benefit of all older persons and communities. This will enable in-context capacity-building, as referred to in the forum.
