This brief summarises The Funding Elder Care in South Africa Report which outlines how state spending for older persons is structured. In the report we show that over the last two decades, spending on older persons in South Africa has been focussed on social grants, most notably the Older Persons Grant. In examining the change in funding over time, we see that the funding at provincial levels has decreased by 13%.
