10 WORSE NATIONS TO GROW OLD ~ :: Habari Duniani


The charity's Global AgeWatch Index measured the social and economic welfare of those over 60 in 96 nations.

It measured income security, health and whether someone had access to public transport, social connections as well as their physical safety.

Switzerland topped the list and Afghanistan came last. The bottom ten Nations are Afghanistan, Malawi, Mozambique, West Bank & Gaza, Pakistan, Tanzania, Zambia, Rwanda, Uganda and Iraq to grow old for people over 60-years-old according to HelpAge International.

The survey may reflect more about data collection across Africa, than the quality of life for older people on the continent.

Toby Porter, chief executive of HelpAge International, said he could not include many countries as there was not enough data available.
He told the New York Times that out of 54 countries in Africa, there was enough data available to include only 11.
