ageing, healthcare, Japan, Africa

The world is ageing, and Africa is not the exception. The population ageing is a blessing as people are living longer, but also there are various challenges: double burden of diseases with persisting infectious diseases as well as increasing non-communicable diseases will inevitably raise the demand of health and long-term care. Come join us in discussing challenges and prospects of ageing in Africa, together with former Minister of Health for the Republic of Senegal, Dr Awa Marie Coll-Seck and key experts from Africa and Asia.
