The 10th APRU Population Aging Conference 2019

October 13 - October 14










The 10th APRU Population Aging Conference
A New Paradigm in the Era of the 100-year Life Span: The Search for Social and Scientific Solutions

The rapid aging of populations has become a major concern for economies from across the Pacific Rim, particular Japan,  which is entering the era of the 100-year life span. It is the first time in human history that a paradigm change is required in all aspects of medical science, health care, and society to accommodate longevity.

This Conference will address challenges unique to the Asia-Pacific region, share the latest research findings and initiatives to contribute to international aging policies, and raise public awareness.

The conference will be held at Mita Campus, Keio University, Tokyo.
