Issue: 
Pages: 
319–25
Synopsis: 
This article focusses on the importance of prevention (including secondary prevention) as a component of healthcare of older persons. The research findings show relatively inadequate levels of prevention-care practices, as well as barriers to prevention-related activities for older persons in the primary healthcare system. Training in age-related prevention activities for health centre staff is advocated.

ABSTRACT
