Tackling chronic disease among 'left-behind' older people in India and China

Tackling chronic disease among 'left-behind' older people in India and China
Tackling chronic disease among 'left-behind' older people in India and China
India and China are both undergoing unprecedented urbanisation, with increasing numbers of younger people and adults moving into cities, leaving behind their older parents in rural areas. Both India and China have a patrilineal culture which emphasises a son’s duty to support his parents, however it is also men who are most likely to migrate, leaving parents without this support. This research examines the impact of sons’ emigration on the health of parents ‘left-behind’.

Abstract

India and China are both undergoing unprecedented urbanisation, with increasing numbers of younger people and adults moving into cities, leaving behind their older parents in rural areas. Both India and China have a patrilineal culture which emphasises a son’s duty to support his parents, however it is also men who are most likely to migrate, leaving parents without this support. This research examines the impact of sons’ emigration on the health of parents ‘left-behind’.
