AARP KEYNOTE ADDRESS:

3RD WELL AGING SOCIETY SUMMIT ASIA-JAPAN

October 12, 2020

AARP welcomes the attendees of the 3rd Well Aging Society Summit Asia-Japan to consider how the story of human longevity is also a story about equity in aging.  Across the world, people have been living longer than ever.  However not all countries are experiencing the same gains, and not everyone is living longer in each country.  The link between Longevity and equity is a major focus for AARP – and our report, entitled How Growing Geographic and Racial Disparities Inhibit the Ability to Live Longer and Healthier Lives (October 2020), provides a national-level analysis of the United States.
