With the increasing life expectancy, the number of older adults will increase across the world. In 1990, there were 23 million older people aged 60 years and over in the Sub-Saharan region of Africa, and this has increased to 46 million over the space of 15 years. The United Nations said that this would further increase to 161 million in 2050. Even though the growth rate of older adults in the Sub-Saharan region is not as fast as that observed in developed nations. United Nations said that the growth rate of the older population of Sub-Saharan Africa by 2040 will be faster than that experienced by any other region since 1950.

We, Emerging Researchers & Professionals in Ageing- African Network, believe that building capacity in preparation for the projected increase in the older adults’ population in this region is strategic. Our network aims to encourage, train, provide resources, and mentor younger researchers and professionals interested in older adults’ care. We believe this will create enthusiastically, vibrate, passionate and competent transdisciplinary teams of health and social care workers to take care of the older adults in the Sub-Saharan region of Africa.
