The global increase in the population of older persons has profound inter-sectoral implications, necessitating the development of age-friendly initiatives at the global and national levels. While progress has been relatively slower across Sub-Saharan African countries, highlighting existing commendable initiatives is essential to identify the current gaps and promote the development of strategies and interventions to promote age-friendly societies. This mini-review highlights some of the key initiatives in Ghana in the areas of policy, healthcare, finance, social services, education and research and in promoting dementia-friendly communities.
