Prevention in an ageing world: Global launch

Date: Friday 28 February 2020
Time: 2.30-4.30pm (followed by a networking reception)
Location: Wellcome Collection, 183 Euston Road, London

Following our series of engagement events on Prevention in an ageing world over the autumn, this event will see the launch of our research findings on the health and productivity burden of preventable diseases in later life and focus on the need to implement preventative health interventions right across the life course.

There is already a consensus that preventing disease and limiting long-term impairment and the compounding impact of multiple diseases are both good for our health and will play an important role in supporting the economic sustainability of health systems. But translating that consensus into sustained action can be challenging.

The event will bring together key global policymakers and thought leaders to share examples of good practice and drive forward an agenda for change within health systems to ensure the benefits that preventative interventions have on economic productivity and health system sustainability are maximised.
