Ageing and inequalities

There are distinct inequalities in how our ageing population experience later life. While certain fractions of the population enjoy the benefits of longer, healthier lives, experiencing later life as a period of fulfilment and enjoyment, others experience later life as a time of profound challenge. 

The causes of these inequalities are complex; they are inter-related and challenging to address. MICRA’s interdisciplinary base enables us to support researchers addressing this multifaceted issue.
