Geriatrie en die behoefte aan geriatriese dienste in Suid-Afrika

  • D Louw


South Africa is far behind most of the rest of the Western world as regards the development of geriatric services. Doctors and health authorities should be more concerned about the present situation and should be prepared to play a more active role in the existing programme of services for the care of the aged. Because of the primary role of health in the life of an aged person, no programme for the care of the aged can function efficiently without the active participation of the medical profession.
