'Global Coalition on Aging' Launches as 450 Million People Turn 65 Over Next Two Decades
Date:1/26/2011

NEW YORK, Jan. 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The Global Coalition on Aging announced its launch today as a pioneering new initiative to raise awareness and address the social and economic impact of global population aging.  Founding members are AEGON, Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Galderma, Intel, Johnson & Johnson, Novartis, Nutricia, Pfizer and Universal American Corp.  Deloitte Consulting LLP is serving as an advisory member.

The Global Coalition on Aging will provide leadership, research and advocacy to help nations and industry advance sustainable solutions that address the unprecedented demographic transformation already underway.  The Coalition is unique in its focus on aging's impact on all aspects of life and society: the workplace, health and long-term financial security.    

"The emergence of the Coalition is tremendously exciting and fills a critical need at a critical time," said Dr. John Beard, Director of Ageing and Life Course for the World Health Organization.  "It is unique, not just in the breadth of its interests in aging, but also in its philosophy that the best approach is for people to remain engaged and productive as they grow older.  We look forward to working closely with the Coalition to press for change in the policy arena."

The Coalition will foster a re-shaping of public policies to align to the new demographic realities.  Over the next three years, the Coalition will roll out a strategic plan to drive social and policy changes in four key areas:

  • Education and work
  • Financial planning and security
  • Health and wellness
  • Technology, innovation and biomedical research

"We will share this plan with business, governments and other stakeholders who want to join us in this important new venture," said Coalition Executive Director Michael Hodin.  "We will advance innovative solutions
