Professor Elena Moore, a professor in sociology at the University of Cape Town (UCT) has been awarded the prestigious Wellcome Career Development Award, which will help with a unique five-year research programme aimed at understanding the meaning of family care for older people in southern Africa.
The programme’s roots are in the Care of Older Persons in Southern Africa Network (COPSAN) – a network of scholars, government officials and civil society organisations who work in ageing research and who are determined to address challenges related to aged care provision in the region. Moore has collaborated with academics at the University of Namibia, the University of Botswana and the University of Malawi, as well as the Samson Institute for Ageing Research, for this research study.
