■ KIHASA-KGS Joint Conference: Innovative Strategies in a Super-Aging Society: What Can Be Changed for Social Security for the Elderly and How?


Friday, March 24, 2017, 1:30 PM ~ 6:00 PM

Pressroom, 19th Floor, Korea Press Center

Hosted jointly by the Korea Gerontological Society and the Korea Institute for Health and Social Affairs


Korea is expected to become an aged society this year according to the recent statistics released by the Ministry of the Interior, and according to a UN report a super-aged society by 2026. That is 10 years shorter than the time it has taken for Japan to undergo the same shift in population structure. However, discussions are still lacking in academia and the government on response to structural and qualitative changes in the population. The 3rd Basic Plan for Low Fertility and Aging Soceity is also criticized for its unbalanced focus on low fertility over aging society.


Join us at the KIHASA-KGS Conference for a stimulating conversation in search of innovative strategies in response to a super-aging society.


Speakers Include:

- Heung Bong CHA, president, International Association of Gerontology and Geriatrics

- Seong Jae CHOI, president, Korea Labor Force Development Institute for the Aged

- Jong Ryull YOON, chairman, Korean Association of Gerontology and Geriatrics

- Kyung Hee Jeong, director, Aging Society Research Center, Korea Institute for Health and Social Affairs
