The main aim of the Israeli Longevity Alliance (ISRLA) is to act for the advancement of healthy longevity for the entire population through scientific research, technological development, medical treatment, public health and educational measures, advocacy and social activism.
Within this general aim, the Israeli Longevity Alliance emphasizes and promotes the amelioration of the deteriorative aging process as the main factor undermining healthy longevity.
The Israeli Longevity Alliance has been at the forefront of the longevity movement inIsrael. Its members were instrumental in organizing national conferences on longevity, e.g. on October 1, 2013, during the first International Longevity Day, March 27, 2014, during Israel Science Day, October 15, 2017, during the International Longevity Month, as well as petitioned the authorities and organized smaller events and publications throughout the year. We strive to intensify longevity research activism.
For example we promote the position paper of the International Society on Aging and Disease (ISOAD, with which our Alliance is also affiliated) on “The Critical Need to Promote Research on Biology of Aging and Aging-related Diseases to Improve Health and Longevity of the Elderly Population.” It is available in 12 languages, including Hebrew.
We invite longevity activists from around the world to join forces, both here in Israel and everywhere, both representatives of NGOs and individual activists. You are welcome to apply and propose co-operation by writing to the address below, or filling in the application form online (in English or Hebrew) http://goo.gl/forms/ExDJc7z01t

We also actively cooperate with like-minded individuals and organizations in Israel. The Israeli Longevity Alliance recently formed a strategic partnership with the VETEK (Seniority) Association (which is currently in the process of reorganization) – currently the two associations share this website.
We believe together we will act as mutual catalysis to encourage longevity research and advocacy in Israel and around the world! Welcome to join the movement!
