ECHAlliance is pleased to be partnering with AgeingFit Event. We will participate in the following sessions:

  • Brian O´Connor, ECHAlliance’s Chair will moderate the session Healthy ageing in action: Which strategies can advance well-being across the life course? on 25th January 11.00 am – 12.30 pm CET.

About Brian’s session:
Most of the health problems of old age are triggered by declines in physical and mental capacity and are linked to chronic conditions. Many of these can be prevented or delayed by healthy behaviours and by the environments that support them. Improving wellbeing and enabling people to remain active, can also reduce dependency, relieving the burdens on health systems.
How can we intervene earlier to make ageing better? How can we integrate health care systems to better provide care across the lifespan? How can we effectively make use of technology to deliver preventative services and interventions? What are the best and most sustainable investments to foster healthy and active ageing across the life course?
