VoxDev Podcast with Prof. McKelway

Prof. Maddie McKelway is featured in this podcast from VoxDev

Are the elderly more likely to be depressed? How does depression impact the lives of seniors? How can policy intervene?

In developing countries, we know comparatively little about how well the elderly cope with problems like depression and loneliness. There are few policies to support sufferers, partly because of this lack of data. In this episode of VoxDevTalks, Maddie McKelway and Garima Sharma discuss some of the surprising revelations of a new cross-country study and suggest ways in which policy can improve the mental health of seniors.
