oa ESR Review : Economic and Social Rights in South Africa - Dementia : the stigma and the challenges : conference paper



It is widely acknowledged that South Africa has one of the most rapidly ageing populations in Africa, with increasing numbers between 64 and 70 years of age (Marais, 2007: 14). In 2000, it had the second-highest number of older persons on the African continent, and a 2001 population census showed that about 7.3% of the total population in South Africa were 60 or older (Joubert and Bradshaw, 2006).
