As part of the National Academy of Medicine’s Global Roadmap for Healthy Longevity, an International Commission that includes stakeholders and representatives from key participating institutions worldwide will work together to perform an assessment of the existing and projected risks, challenges, and opportunities presented by global aging.
This Commission will recommend global priorities and actions to be addressed by 2030 to optimize the health, function, and well-being of all people into later life. The Commission will be geographically/demographically diverse and will consist of 17 eminent individuals from both the public and private sectors with expertise in gerontology and geriatrics, demography, the social determinants of health, behavioral health, built environments, business and workforce, economics, health care delivery and financing, biomedical science and technology, and health and finance policy, among others.
Many of the Commissioners would be “dual-hatted” as members of the “workstream teams” (or workshop planning committees). The Commission will work across the workstream teams to define the workshop tasks, agendas, and workshop speakers.
