Proposed Project Description

 

Background
India is in a phase of demographic transition. As per the 1991 census, the population of the elderly in India was 57 million as compared with 20 million in 1951. There has been a sharp increase in the number of elderly persons between 1991 and 2001 and it has been projected that by the year 2050, the number of elderly people would rise to about 324 million and likely to treble by 2050. India has thus acquired the label of “an ageing nation” with 7.7% of its population being more than 60 years old. Therefore healthcare for the elderly needs special attention. 
What is Geriatrics
Geriatrics or geriatric medicine is based on improving health care for elderly people. It supports healthy improvement in older adults by preventing and treating disease and disability that often comes with ageing. RAGC aims to train 150 candidates in this area of concern.
