Ageing and Health: Policy and Economics in an Era of Longevity

Location

10 St James's Square | London | SW1Y 4LE | United Kingdom

Open to: Academic | Student

How can societies meet the health, policy and economic challenges of global population ageing?

One in nine people in the world is 60 or older and this is expected to rise to one in five people by 2050. A globally ageing population and the associated demographic changes have wide-ranging implications for health systems, medical priorities, economic policies, and labour and consumer markets.

The certainty of global population ageing demands greater action, innovation, and a long-term approach from policymakers, health and medical professionals as well as businesses.

Are current health, public policy and economic responses to global ageing adequate? How can health systems develop sustainable strategies to support an ageing global population? How can the challenge of managing chronic conditions be met and at what cost? How can societies address the financial impact of ageing populations?
