    Healthy Longevity

    Overview

    Our Healthy Longevity program spreads awareness of developing knowledge and evidence-based programs to promote prevention, wellness, and scientific advancement to extend healthy life.

    About the Milken Institute

    A nonprofit, nonpartisan economic think tank, the Milken Institute works to improve lives around the world by advancing innovative economic and policy solutions that create jobs, widen access to capital, and enhance health. We produce rigorous, independent economic research—and maximize its impact by convening global leaders from the worlds of business, finance, government, and philanthropy. By fostering collaboration between the public and private sectors, we transform great ideas into action.

    Key Results

    The Milken Institute’s 2016 report, “The Price Women Pay for Dementia,” highlighted the disproportionate economic and health burden of dementia on women in the United States.1 Furthermore, the report provided statistical estimates of the prevalence of dementia and the economic burden associated with the disease by gender from 2012 to 2040. In this technical supplement, we update the previously reported future projections with more recent data and briefly discuss substantive changes. Our updated numbers come from a forecast combination of estimates drawn from recently published studies. We use the same methodology as in the previous report to derive the adjusted projected economic burden of dementia.

    By the Numbers

    7.5 years - Older adults who have positive perceptions of aging live on average 7.5 years longer.

    52 % of Americans who reach age 65 will someday need a high level of help with everyday activities such as bathing, dressing, & eating.

    8 Risk factors that can reduce the risk of dementia if addressed: hearing loss, hypertension, obesity, smoking, depression, physical inactivity, social isolation, and diabetes.

    Reducing the Cost and Risk of Dementia

    An in-depth analysis on the value of brain health and the effects of dementia on diverse communities.

    Increased longevity is perhaps one of the greatest success stories of our modern public health system. But along with this success comes one of our greatest challenges to healthy longevity. As we age, the risk of neurodegenerative disease increases dramatically.

     At the Milken Institute, we strive to catalyze practical solutions to global challenges. That is why we are putting forward new ideas to reduce the cost and risk of dementia. This report updates previously published data and expands our analysis to include the value of brain health and the effects of dementia on diverse communities. The report includes actionable recommendations centered on five primary goals:

    Goal #1: Promote Strategies to Maintain and Improve Brain Health for All Ages, Genders, and Across Diverse Populations

    Goal #2: Increase Access to Cognitive Testing and Early Diagnosis

    Goal #3: Increase Opportunities for Diverse Participation in Research and Prioritize Funding to Address Health Disparities

    Goal #4: Build a Dementia-Capable Workforce Across the Care Continuum

    Goal #5: Establish Services & Policies that Promote Supportive Communities and Workplaces for People with Dementia & Their Caregivers

    Opportunity Zones

    Overview

    Opportunity Zones were established by Congress in the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 to encourage long-term investments in low-income urban and rural communities nationwide. The Opportunity Zones provision was based on the bipartisan Investing in Opportunity Act, which was championed by Senators Tim Scott (R-SC) and Cory Booker (D-NJ) and Representatives Pat Tiberi (R-OH) and Ron Kind (D-WI), who led a regionally and politically diverse coalition of nearly 100 congressional cosponsors.

    52.3 million: 52.3 million Americans live in economically distressed communities

    2/3: Over 2/3 of job growth comes from small businesses, for whom the most important variable for success is access to capital

    3/4: Between 2000 and 2016, three-quarters of net job growth occurred in a narrow selection of metro areas, resulting in inequalities across the country

    What Is an Opportunity Zone?

    Opportunity Zones are low-income census tracts nominated by governors and certified by the U.S. Department of the Treasury into which investors can now put capital to work financing new projects and enterprises in exchange for certain federal capital gains tax advantages. The country now has over 8,700 Opportunity Zones in every state and territory.

    What Are Qualified Opportunity Funds?

    Qualified Opportunity Funds are private sector investment vehicles that invest at least 90 percent of their capital in qualifying assets in Opportunity Zones.

    Focus on Localizing

    Identify and address local implementation barriers, including those created by regulation or tax policy

    Facilitate investment through Qualified Opportunity Funds that support local infrastructure and public works projects

    Help build public sector capacity to accelerate Opportunity Zone implementation

    Focus on Collaborating

    Promote regional and multisector collaboration to mitigate gentrification and displacement risks

    Facilitate investment through Qualified Opportunity Funds that leverage existing economic development programs

    Partner with local institutions to efficiently execute high-potential investments

    Capital Markets Training Program

    Overview Capital markets are essential to the creation of prosperous societies. Yet in many countries, macroeconomic instability, variable regulatory policy, & illiquid markets deter long-term investments and deprive businesses of the finance they need to grow.

     

    Successful capital-market development requires robust skills in financial regulation, market intermediation and policy planning. We are addressing this need by building a cadre of highly-skilled professionals across developing and emerging economies. Our alumni are equipped to strengthen their countries’ markets while exploring innovative financial solutions to pressing social and economic challenges.

    Opioid Crisis Response

    Overview

    The opioid crisis is one of the largest public health crises of our time. As the leading cause of accidental death in the United States, increasing rates of opioid misuse illustrate the deeply intertwined nature of substance misuse and mental health.

     

    The Milken Institute Opioid Crisis Response aims to advance the most effective strategies for expanding access to and awareness of prevention resources to opioid and substance misuse. We identify gaps, create intersections, and accelerate action from existing evidence-based and informed work. We do this by convening leaders in government, academia, technology, industry, nonprofit, and more to conduct action-oriented programmatic work that focuses on five key areas:

     

    (1) Media and communications: Raise awareness of the opioid crisis by stressing the importance of prevention and access to evidence-based resources while ensuring the right message is reaching the right audience

     

    (2) Public safety: Showcase the need for proper collaboration between public safety and law enforcement

     

    (3) Access: Partner with leaders in different communities (including employers, faith-based organizations, schools, and more) to increase access to and awareness of prevention resources.

     

    (4) Innovation: Locate and share innovations that create broader awareness and help prevent and intervene in substance use disorders

     

    (5) Investment: Encourage scalable investment opportunities that increase awareness, access, and innovation related to the prevention of substance use disorders

     

    The Terrible Toll of the Opioid Crisis Is Even Worse for Women: Data show that deaths among women from opioid overdose have increased at a much faster rate than for men, 400% compared with 265%. And states where doctors write the most opioid prescriptions are also the states with the widest overall disparities between men’s and women’s health.
