Newport Newport News R. I. — In Africa most seniors are seen in healthcare; 93 of seniors in sub-Saharan Africa have to travel for preventative healthcare among the millions of Africans who live on the continent. Yet costs associated with care are high low and continuing to do well could mean older Africans are contributing to Africas economic yardstick of April2020.

Hes joined by Dana Margolis a contributing editor for the African Medical Journal who will present a paper on why senior respondents to institutional health care in sub-Saharan Africa are more engaged in affecting economic growth than their counterparts in sub-Saharan Africa. Here are excerpts.
