"Squaring the curve in less developed countries. Thinking public policies for healthy life expectancies"
George Myers lecture 2017: Dr Alberto Palloni “Evolution of human mortality: genes, intrauterine development and early growth”.
The great success achieved in prolonging human life doesn’t necessarily mean that the gained years are lived in good health for the whole world. A diversity of factors, both environmental and socioeconomic, shape disparities among populations.
Healthy life expectancy - the average amount of years that a healthy person, at a certain age - expects to live before suffering from a disability, is an ideal tool to monitor health needs and highlight health inequities, because being independent from the size of the population and its age structure, it allows comparisons between different groups.
REVES (Espérance de Vie et Santé) is an international organization for the promotion of the use of health expectancies as an indicator of the health of populations. The REVES network convenes researchers representing a wide range of disciplines: demography, epidemiology, gerontology, social sciences, public health, health economics, medicine, biology and statistics The REVES network meets at an annual conference and will be held for the first time in a South American country.
