In 2017, Instituto de Longevidade Mongeral Aegon launched the Cities and Longevity Program, a two-part initiative to drive more effective public policymaking for healthy and active aging. The Urban Development for Longevity Index (IDL City Index) analyzes public indicators to measure the readiness of Brazilian cities for population aging, focusing on 6 critical domains: healthcare, well-being, housing, leisure, work, and finances. An update to the Index, expected in 2019, will expand the assessment from 500 to 1,000 cities across Brazil. The second part of the program, the Public Management for Longevity Project (GPL Training Course), trains city managers in the use of the Index methodology, as well as in Design and Process Science, to support their ability to plan and implement policies that promote active and healthy aging in cities.
Instituto de Longevidade Mongeral Aegon is the Brazilian partner of the Aegon Center for Longevity and Retirement.
