Image: Oxford University

In response to the current COVID-19 situation, this workshop, originally scheduled for 31 March 2020 at Oxford University, has been postponed. The plan is to reschedule the workshop later in the year. All event registrants will be notified via email. We wish to express our best wishes to the community during this challenging time.

Hosted by the Health Economics Research Centre at Oxford University in collaboration with CEPAR

In recent years there has been a marked change in long-term mortality trends in the United Kingdom. Recent mortality statistics show little or no improvements in life expectancy after decades of steady improvement. What has caused these recent trends? Can they be reversed? What are the implications for health and social care policy?

This workshop aims to bring together researchers from a range of perspectives to better understand trends in mortality and life expectancy in the United Kingdom and to explore the factors behind these trends.
