Adrienne Mendenhall, Director of Business Development ACCESS Health International Southeast Asia represents ACCESS Health International on the Global Future Council for longevity. 

On October 28th, the World Economic Forum Global Future Council on Longevity (2019-2020 term) released a new report called  ‘COVID and Longer Lives: Combating ageism and creating solutions’.

From June to July 2020, in collaboration with AARP and the US National Academy of Medicine, the Global Future Council on Longevity convened five conversations about  COVID-19 and Ageing Societies, with hundreds of participants across the globe. The newly released report is a compendium of recommended actions that emerged from these dialogues. It offers solutions to protect the rights and dignity of older adults, combat ageism, and ensure that responses to COVID-19 are informed, inclusive, and targeted.
