100 Heathy Years: Are Kids Prepared?

Learn more about tackling healthy life expectancy from the start.

18 May 2017 | 12:00-17:30 (CET) and evening dinner | Darmstadt, Germany

Children think of the last decades of life as a time of physical limitations, rather than vitality and activity. As life expectancy increases today’s children stand to benefit, if they are given the tools and know-how to protect their own health.

Merck and the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) will share the results of a worldwide study involving parents, educators, policy makers, research institutions, and development actors on preparing kids for healthy life. With a focus on the Health-Adjusted Life Expectancy (HALE) indicator, our panel, Q&A and networking sessions will explore barriers and successes, and ask thought-provoking questions:

  • What are the threats to long-term health we need to tackle now?
  • What are schools doing, and what could be done outside the classroom?
  • How do schools, parents and communities share responsibility?

With data and insights from across sectors and stakeholders, learn more on this important topic and Merck’s ongoing commitment.
