Improving Health Policy Worldwide

The international and local legislation may influence the rate of fundamental and translational research in the domain of aging and longevity. But the international and local agenda can not change fast unless longevity activists help filling the gap of knowledge on the potential of longevity therapies at all levels, from general public to decision makers. This is why it is important to initiate and support public discussion of new laws related to improve health during the life course and in old age, and regulation policy for new therapies and drugs. 

Here are some examples of how longevity activists can help in building rational local policy for aging and longevity.
