Prevention in an ageing world: Implications for policy and practice
Jul 15, 2019 | EVENT
Date: Tuesday, 5 November 2019
Time: 3.30 to 5.30pm
Preventing disease and limiting long-term impairment and the compounding impact of multiple diseases not only has positive health and wellbeing outcomes, but also wider economic ones.
This pre-conference workshop, run ahead of the Australian Association of Gerontology’s annual conference, will give an overview of initial research findings on the value of prevention in an ageing world and the role of health systems, followed by a participatory discussion on the implications for global policymakers.
This event is part of the Prevention in an ageing world programme, which is seeking to reshape the debate around prevention and promote preventative interventions right across the life course.
