We Have A Strategic Vision for Global Aging

Taking On Longevity with Market Innovation

We develop initiatives that focus on meeting the challenges of worldwide aging with groundbreaking market solutions and progressive public policies.

Through our white papers, roundtables, webinars, presentations to third parties, and other communications materials, we are leading the global aging dialogue and providing public education designed to enable healthier and more active aging.

Vaccines for All Grants Program

GCOA and Pfizer Global Medical Grants launched a $1 million grant program to improve uptake of vaccines among Japanese older adults. The Vaccines for All: Longevity Unleashed for Everyone (VALUE) initiative will support, advance, and validate quality improvement strategies that measurably increase the number of older adults in Japan who are immunized against at least one targeted vaccine-preventable disease. The initiative will also uncover pathways for more effective management of health costs in Japan’s aging society.
