Aging is excluded from WHO work program. Please react! (Until Nov. 15) Please use the link below to participate in the WHO Work Program consultation! (easy) Please explain to the World Health Organization that the issue of Aging is important!

http://www.who.int/about/gpw-thirteen-consultation/en/

In detail:

It turns out that in the forthcoming work program of the World Health Organization (WHO) for the next 5 years – 2018-2023 – the issue of aging and aging-related ill health is excluded completely! This means that, within the next 5 years, according to this document, the World Health Organization is not obliged to do anything to care for the health of older persons or to improve their health, not to mention conduct any research and development to create new therapies and technologies for improving the health of the aged, or any kind of longevity research. The issues of aged health are not in the WHO work program! This is the essence of ageism in health care and health research!

Currently, the WHO conducts a public consultation about the draft Work Program. Please use the link below to participate in the consultation! Please explain to the World Health Organization that the issue of Aging is important, and the care and improvement of health of the aged, also through increasing biomedical R&D of aging, are important! The consultation fields are easy to fill in, and even a couple of sentences, with your affiliation, could help break the ageist wall! The consultation takes place until November 15. Please also spread the word in your circles. Thank you for your action!

In the words of Jane Barratt, Secretary General of the International Federation on Ageing (IFA) that brings this issue to the highlight of global public discussion: “We urge the WHO to rectify the glaring omission of population ageing and older people in the draft 13th General Programme of Work. It is a striking oversight that will diminish its credibility among all of us. Make your voice heard bit.”

A new book has been published, entitled “Longevity Promotion: Multidisciplinary Perspectives” by Ilia Stambler, PhD.

“This book considers the multidisciplinary aspects of longevity promotion, from the advocacy, historical, philosophical and scientific perspectives. … The setting and careful consideration of a goal may be seen as a first step toward its accomplishment.”

Thanks for your interest, reviews and spreading the word!

What meeting or publication do you plan for the Longevity Day / Longevity Month campaign in October – in support of biomedical research of aging and longevity?

Please announce / share / link – so it will also give encouragement to others! Thanks.

Dear friends,

Following the tradition of 2013, 2014 and 2015, as usual 3 months before October 1, there starts the organization of events and publications toward the “Longevity Day” (based on the UN International Day of Older Persons - October 1) in support of biomedical aging and longevity research.
http://www.longevityforall.org/longevity-day-and-longevity-month-october-2016/

This has been a worldwide international campaign successfully adopted by many longevity activists groups. Last year, events, meetings, publications and promotions were organized in the framework of this campaign in over 40 countries. Some promotions reached hundreds of thousands of viewers. This campaign has also received factual endorsement and publicity from several internationally and nationally recognized scientific and advocacy associations.

Hopefully, this year, the campaign will be no less enriching, unifying and impactful. Though this year, it was suggested, while keeping the "longevity day" concept as would be desirable to particular groups and activists, rather to emphasize and organize the longevity promotion events in October in a new framework – as “The Longevity Month” – as usually the “longevity day” events spread through the entire month of October. Various “commemorative months” to support particular advocacy issues is a well established and effective practice, and a dedicated “month” can give people more flexibility and space to organize events and publications. This time it would even be endeavored to gain some official state-level recognition of this commemorative month campaign. Yet it would depend on the strength of every individual event and publication of this campaign.

Several events are already included as a part of the "Longevity Day/Month" celebrations. One of them is the conference of the International Society on Aging and Disease (ISOAD) that will take place in Stanford, on September 30 - October 2 http://www.longevityforall.org/international-conference-on-aging-and-disease-stanford-sept-30-oct-2-2016/

If you would like to plan a longevity research promoting meeting or event in your country, or produce a longevity advocacy publication toward October, please let know – so the participants of this campaign can encourage each other and reinforce each other’s efforts. Looking forward to October full with advancement of longevity science!

The state-level Healthy Longevity Research, Development and Translation program is now being considered in Kazakhstan – called “The Global Healthspan Extension Initiative”. If adopted, it can boost international cooperation and help establish many more longevity R&D programs in other countries. Please show your support and spread the word! Thank you! ilia
