82.2 years, life expectancy at birth in Spain

It should be recalled that life expectancy at birth in Spain was 82.2 years in 2020: 79.5 in men and 85 in women. A significant percentage of the population reaches this age in good health. Many people over the age of 65 can continue to carry out their ordinary activities and continue to contribute to the community in many ways. However, societies are often not prepared, either materially or culturally, to welcome the potential contribution of the elderly, thus facilitating their social inclusion.

This workshop seeks to address aging and the social challenges it poses from a perspective that takes into account the diversity of personal situations and, therefore, as an opportunity to humanize society and make it more inclusive.

The University of Navarra and IDEA, business specialized in the promotion and management of healthcare centers and services, have launched the Chair IDEA of New Longevities with the goal to respond to the outstanding challenges of demographic aging. It is framed in the ICS and is within the line 'work,care and development' of the Strategy 2025 of the academic center.
