Addressing inequalities

On August 7th, Alexandre Kalache delivered the closing key note at the Addressing Inequalities Summit, an invitation-only event designed in collaboration with the Government of Canada to foster discussion among participants who are interested and committed to eliminating inequalities experienced by older people within marginalized subpopulations. Special attention is been paid to addressing the inequalities experienced by older LGBTQ2 people; older Indigenous people; older immigrants; older women; older people living in rural and remote areas; older prisoners; and older homeless people.

Alexandre Kalache also opened the Brain Health Forum of Aging 2.0 and highlighted inequalities among older people in accessing innovative solutions. Both events are happening before the official opening of the International Conference of the International Federation on Ageing which will be held in Toronto from August 8th to 10th.
