ILA yearly report 2022

Since the beginning of the year the ILA has continued to publicize one of its major longevity advocacy achievements – the increasing recognition of degenerative aging as a treatable medical indication.

The ILA widely shared the publication of its board members and activists published in “The Lancet Healthy Longevity”, entitled “Advanced pathological ageing should be represented in the ICD” 

By Ilia Stambler (ILA board member), Aleksey Alekseev, Yuri Matveyev, and Daria Khaltourina (ILA board member)

(free and open access)

ILA also published and disseminated explanatory articles of the recognition of degenerative aging as a medical condition 

This recognition has been accomplished in a large measure thanks to many years of longevity advocacy, in particular the years-long advocacy of the International Longevity Alliance and its core activists. It is hoped that our joint work, with the other co-authors and partners, will further stimulate this discussion and research.

Considering ILA scientific projects, the ILA continues to conduct a wide scale scientific bioinformatics project in France to determine predictors of health and longevity, entitled “Open Data for Health” .

Toward December 2022, ILA endorsed and became a partner in the Collective Collection of Lifespan Data (COLLIDA) project, led by the ILA federated member in France – Longévité & Santé.

ILA members further promoted longevity education by co-organizing and active participation in longevity research and education conferences, including:

By the end of 2022, ILA included 38 non-profit associations from 28 countries as federated members. Most recently, the organizations who joined were: Humanity Plus, European Society of Preventive, Regenerative and Anti Aging Medicine (ESAAM), and Longevity Escape Velocity Foundation (LEVF). 

In 2022, the website of the International Longevity Alliance was upgraded, including a longevity activists map around the world. 

The activities of ILA through the years were further recorded and summarized in reports.

On January 28, the annual ILA general assembly took place. It approved the ILA financial and activity reports, and confirmed the board members for 2023.

The assembly re-elected 3 board members for another 2 years term: Daria Khaltourina – Council for Public Health and Problems of Demography (Russia), Edouard Debonneuil – Longevite & Sante (France), Ilia Stambler – Vetek (Seniority) Association – the Movement for Longevity and Quality of Life (Israel).
