REVES is a network on health expectancy and the disablement process. It holds annual meetings to provide a platform for the exchange of recent research on conceptual frameworks, international comparisons, methods, trends determinants and disparities. Under the theme "Determinants of unusual and differential health expectancy" the 28th REVES meeting brings together researchers interested in population health, longevity, the disablement process and ageing to exchange their recent scientific results.
This scientific meeting aims at developing a comprehensive picture of the factors decisive for human health and longevity. Papers will identify the key drivers of longer and healthier lives by explaining variations in various dimensions of health and in mortality. This includes the analysis of hitherto unexplained phenomena and paradoxes of health and longevity, among them the causes underlying unusual health and mortality patterns of subpopulations with specific, health and longevity-relevant characteristics, the factors determining differentials in health and mortality between population subgroups, and changes in health and longevity over time.
Scientists from the World Population Program will present latest research from the ERC funded Reassessing Ageing from a Population Perspective (Re-Ageing) project. Among other things, the Re-Ageing project ascertains the extent to which advanced societies are actually aging in multiple dimensions, including health, cognitive abilities, and longevity.
