Abstract:After a brief outline of the number of elderly in Zimbabwe according to racial group (Africans and people of mixed racial parentage, Asians, and Europeans), the author proposes ten components of a primary health care system for the elderly, namely, social networks; pension, social security and welfare schemes; housing; nutrition; water; sanitation; rehabilitation and disabilities; control and treatment of diseases; health education; and a demography and health information system. Case studies of three elderly Zimbabweans are included at the end of the article.
