Longevity International acts as the Secretariat for the All Party Parliamentary Group for Longevity which Tina leads, and which launched The Health of the Nation Strategy supported by Rt Hon Matt Hancock MP, Secretary of State for Health and Care, in February 2020 to deliver 5 extra years of healthy life expectancy to all British citizens by 2035 while mimimising health inequalities. The APPG is setting up the Business Coalition for Healthier Longer Lives (a key recommendation in the Strategy, and more urgent in the 'new normal’ post Covid-19).
