Older women and transport issues in sub-Saharan Africa.

Porter, G. (2010) 'Older women and transport issues in sub-Saharan Africa.', International Forum for rural transport and development : forum news., 15 (3). pp. 1-5.


Knowledge of the links between transport, mobility and poor people’s livelihoods and wellbeing in Africa is remarkably sparse. Yet older people form a substantial and key component of African populations, not least in the era of HIV/AIDS. In many countries this has left grandparents supporting and caring for grandchildren in the context of a missing or incapacitated middle generation due to parental deaths and ill health.
