Every person–in every country around the world–should have the opportunity to live a long and healthy life. However, the COVID-19 pandemic has shed a spotlight on the weakness of systems designed to provide the basic foundations that nurture and secure healthy lives across the globe. What is clearer than ever is that health is foundational, and anything that makes it harder for us to get healthy, stay healthy, or recover when we are sick will increase disparities and inevitably widen the longevity gap.
We are now at a crossroads where we need to reassess, redefine, and reprioritize what health means in a world facing significant demographic shifts and longevity trends. To leverage this unprecedented growth, economies will need to invest in the health of an ageing population that is stronger, healthier, more skilled, and more adaptable.
As the trend of global ageing has accelerated, so should the solutions and strategies to harness this growth. We hope you can join this virtual convening with global thought leaders and innovators from a range of industries and organizations who are committed to advancing solutions and forming positive collaborations to build more equitable and healthy communities.
