The Coming Wave: Global Population Aged 60+ Set to Double by 2050
PureHealth, the largest healthcare platform in the Middle East, is set to reinforce its long-standing mission of promoting longevity and healthy lifespans at Arab Health 2024. This year’s event will focus on longevity, which has long been PureHealth’s North Star, and is rapidly gaining importance across not only the global healthcare sector, but an important topic for public policy makers in planning for future economies.
