Event Description

This Webinar Session titled: ‘Population ageing, heterogeneity and multiple vulnerabilities of older persons in India’ was delivered by Prof. S Siva Raju (Centre for Population, Health & Development, Tata Institute of Social Sciences, Mumbai), as part of INIA’s Webinar Series 2020. Given the population ageing in India, and its huge variations across different geographical regions, heterogeneity and multiple vulnerabilities are two important dimensions that need to be focused on when studying ageing in India. This session covered demographic, various socio-economic, health and psychological aspects of older persons, the policy and programmatic responses of various stakeholders associated with ageing issues and the future scenarios. Necessary data from various primary and secondary sources on ageing issues in India was also explored.
