In this Live Event, Prof. Egidio Dorea, MD, coordinator of the 60+ continuing education program at the University of São Paulo (USP) and also director of Aging2.0 SP will moderate a panel to discuss the WHO'S recent decision to consider aging a disease. To the Brazilian elderly this came as a sour surprise: the country is growing older rapidly and longevity has been considered an achievement. How to explain to a a 59yo citizen that when she or he becomes 60, she/he will be "sick"? What are the practical changes that such decision will cause in terms of health insurance, government policy, etc. Apparently there are only disadvantages, both psychologically and financially. In Brazil we consider this decision a major set back, and quite contradictory to The WHO's previous policies.
