The aim of this workshop is to bring together a number of researchers working on population aging and health in low and middle income countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America, including interactions among senior and junior researchers and PhD students.

In particular, we see the major objectives of the workshop to be:

  • To learn about different experiences using longitudinal data in LMICs to explore the conference theme.
  • To facilitate exploration of possible bilateral or multilateral collaborations among projects.
  • To explore follow-ups to this workshop including the possibilities of establishing a network with ongoing relations or developing joint publications or projects.

Sponsored by the Population Aging Research Center and Population Studies Center at the University of Pennsylvania, and the r4d project on “Inclusive Social Protection for Chronic Health Problems” at the University of Lausanne.
