Diseases of Aging
Super Session 3
By 2030, the population is expected to exceed 8.5 billion, with some countries preparing for an average life expectancy of 90+ years. Increasing age is partnered with a growing prevalence of non-communicable diseases and chronic conditions. Likewise, the demographic shift comes with exponential costs to the health care system and societal challenges for how to spend additional years in declining health. In this session, we look at some of the global and Nordic leaders across aging-related fields, how they are tackling these issues, and what is still needed for longevity to equate quality of life.
