Age-Friendly Services for Older Adults: Assessing the Implementation in Primary Health Care Centres in Lagos, Nigeria

Population ageing is occurring globally but much more rapidly in low- and middle-income countries. The WHO developed guidelines for Age-Friendly Health Services (AFHS) at PHC centers to improve care for older patients. This research is aimed at assessing the level of implementation of the WHO framework for age friendly PHCs and to determine the barriers and facilitators to implementation in Lagos, Nigeria. Results will be used to develop and test interventions to improve care readiness and delivery for older people in Nigeria.
