Diplocraft: Combatting Global Inequalities in Aging and Longevity


February 9, 2023

The Meridian Center for Diplomatic Engagement is pleased to announce our next Diplocraft program, Combatting Global Inequalities in Aging and Longevity. By 2050, two-thirds of the world’s population will be over 60 years old and live in low- and middle-income countries, requiring innovative solutions to combat global inequalities in aging. Meridian is bringing together global leaders from multilateral organizations, embassies, and the private sector to discuss the economic and social ramifications that global health inequalities have on citizens and to explore different resources to combat these inequalities. The speakers will also delve into how policymakers and stakeholders can incorporate an equity lens in their workstreams and portfolios to effectively find global health solutions.

The program will feature keynote remarks from Dubravka Šuica, Vice-President for Democracy and Demography at the European Commission followed by a discussion moderated by Akilah Johnson, National Health Reporter at the Washington Post, that will feature:

Dr. Jean Accius
Senior Vice President for Global Thought Leadership, AARP

Dr. Susan Harvey
Vice President of Worldwide Medial Affairs, Hologic Inc.

Her Excellency Alima Mahama
Ambassador of the Republic of Ghana

Dr. Iffath Sharif
