Title: Gender, aging & activity in rural South Africa [abstract]
Author: Stevenson, Brittney; Haddock, Jenna
Keywords: gender roles

Abstract: This study explores how older persons in rural South Africa, a context with both high HIV-prevalence and an increasing burden of non-communicable disease, define what it means to be healthy and sick. We examine how older persons perceive the meaning of being healthy or sick and who they compare their own health with. We also examine how older men and women's physical and mental health affect their daily activities and occupations.
