Author: Tatiana Sergeenko, Principal Consultant, Life Sciences

As the number and proportion of older people in the global population grows, healthcare priorities are changing. Healthy aging – and more specifically, healthy longevity – is an important aspect of this. With medical care pathways shifting from reactive to proactive and preventive care, healthy longevity is set to centre around earlier detection and better prediction of age-related diseases, and self-care. Sitting at the convergence of next-generation molecular-level diagnostics, novel geroprotective therapies, and advanced data analytics, healthy longevity is becoming a major category spanning medical and consumer health.
