In a new publication, Global Aging Report: Threats to Longevity, the ILC Global Alliance outlines the urgent need for the global community to work together to combat the increasing threats to longevity around the world.
This report presents a detailed portrait of the realities of population aging around the world and articulating a call to action from an intergenerational and lifespan perspective. The International Longevity Center Global Alliance comprises ten centers – the United States of America, Japan, France, the United Kingdom, the Dominican Republic, India, South Africa, Argentina, The Netherlands, and Israel. Together, we are engaged in an effort to understand and address the profound consequences of population aging and advancing longevity.
