About Aging in Developing Countries Network

The Aging in Developing Countries Network is an international network of researchers with an interest in population aging in the developing world. The overall goal of the network is to provide a mechanism for exchange of information and ideas.

This network has several objectives, including:

1) Facilitating comparative analysis across nations and regions on a variety of topics dealing with the well-being of the elderly and the consequences of population aging. 2) Informing one another of important developments related to population aging in terms of new studies and surveys, new governmental policies and programs, important conferences and meetings. 3) Serving as a modest clearinghouse of recent articles, bibliographies, new data availability and the like.

The web site relies primarily on network member contributions. Thus, we encourage members to contribute jointly to this effort to ensure comprehensive and timely information. Please send us your comments, suggestions and contributions at any time.

The network is part of the activities of the Michigan Center for the Demography of Aging at the University of Michigan and funded by the U.S. National Institute on Aging.
