  • Delayed Aging
    by Dana Goldman, Professor Leonard D. Schaeffer Chair and Director of the USC Schaeffer Center for Health Policy and Economics Distinguished Professor of the University of Southern California

    Pitting himself against the ‘American immortal,’ Ezekiel Emanuel famously wrote an account in The Atlantic about why he hopes to die at age 75. His argument focuses on the decline (both mental and physical) that — he posits — inevitably occurs with age: there is despair, depression, and the social and economic costs on families, the healthcare system, and society-at-large. Why put your family through this when you have already lived a full, vibrant life up until 75, he asks?

  • Universal health coverage – Leaving no older person behind
    by Patricia Conboy, Head of Global Advocacy and Ageing, HelpAge International

    “The hospitals say ‘we have no pill to treat old age’. We are not made to feel welcome in hospitals. They are impatient with us.” Nora, South Africa “In hospitals, where we have to wait a long time to see a doctor, they don’t bother to listen to everything we have to say, let alone examine us properly….When we start explaining what health problems we have, doctors often say they are age-related, that they are natural changes.” Vera, Kyrgyzstan
