Successful international meeting of experts: roundtable on Education and Health
21st January 2019
Representatives of Latin-American healthcare organizations met in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in October 2018 to discuss "Education and Health". They argued that educating people, by stimulating prevention and security, can increase the life expectancy of the population. They put forward education as a more sustainable solution than medicalization to tackle disease. To this end, countries could integrate schools of education and health, colleges and university programs to create healthy habits, raise public awareness and implement prevention policies.
