Study On Global Ageing and Adult Health - SAGE-WOPS (HIV Study)


The SAGE Well-being of Older People Study (WOPS) is a sub-study conducted in two countries, South Africa and Uganda. The study was conducted to provide data on the effects of HIV/AIDS among older people infected or affected by HIV. The aim of this study was to describe the health status, well being and functional status among older people either infected with HIV themselves, or affected by HIV/AIDS in their families. The impacts of caregiving and ART were also examined. Wave 1 was completed in 2010/11 and Wave 2 will be initiated in 2013.
