The Global Roadmap for Healthy Longevity shall help bring the countries together to produce a comprehensive report assessing the opportunities/challenges presented by global ageing and demonstrating how these opportunities/challenges can be translated into working ideas for societies globally through levers across policy, practice, and socioeconomic infrastructure.

The report shall be informed by workstreams in three domains:
  1. research and innovation;
  2. design and operation of nutritional needs and healthcare delivery systems; and
  3. socio-economic and physical enablers.

Aforementioned domains, in particular considerations, shall advocate policy and practice, health equity and disparities, technology solutions, sustainable financing, and monitoring metrics.

The roadmap report will bring together thought leaders from science, medicine, health care systems, engineering, technology, economics, and policy to identify the necessary priorities and directions for improving health, productivity, and quality of life for older adults worldwide.

It also means the search for the elixir of youth may no longer be the preserve of billionaires but instead be accessible to billions.

Correcting ailments and conditions well before they trigger into an individuals life, through tailored nutrition intervention, appropriate and adequate healthcare delivery systems.

    The National Academy of Medicine (NAM) of the United States launched a Grand Challenge for Healthy Longevity to catalyze transformative innovation and inform policies and priorities to advance healthy aging and longevity globally.

    Hi - I reviewed the three domains and as a suggestion (forgive me if you have already included this), to benefit your objectives:
    1. research and innovation "prototyping";
    2. design and operation of "personalized" nutritional needs and healthcare delivery systems; and
    3. socio-economic and physical enablers.

    My logic is that I work with innovators and they must have a viable prototype to meet MVP basic standards or else the research lacks evidence; and that each person's body handles food/nutritional differently and that personized nutrition can have a broader impact.

    Inequalities in health outcomes exist within, and between, populations and the differences in dietary intake, dietary patterns, and dietary quality seen in groups, have been leading to an unequal burden, often in low and middle income countries (LMICs) compared with high income countries (HICs), and also in subpopulations within these countries.
    Tackling the coexistence through integrated, multisectoral actions must be the approach.
    Recognizing the link between household food insecurity and personalised nutrition shall help the double burden of diet-related diseases.
