ILC Brazil will be guided by Dr. Alexandre Kalache, Chief of the Ageing and Life Course Programme (ALC) at the World Health Organization in Geneva, and ILC China by Professor Du Peng, Director and Professor of the Gerontology Institute at Renmin University. Both centres are committed to addressing longevity and population change and to promoting healthy ageing and intergenerational solidarity.
