Research

We work towards participating in high-quality research opportunities, surveys, etc. Focussing on improving the health of elders, we aim to assess amongst others, the delivery of health care to the elderly, public health issues for elders, and social and family issues in elders.

We are working on several research ideas and are actively looking for research partners and sponsors.
