The IFoA Longevity Bulletin is usually published twice a year on topics relating to mortality and longevity around a particular theme. Past topics have included the gender gap and healthy life expectancy.
With the current outbreak of Ebola in western Africa, as well as the recent MERS coronavirus and H7N9 avian flu outbreaks, the risk of emerging infectious diseases and their potential to cause the next pandemic is a regular feature in the news. The sixth Longevity Bulletin from the IFoA will focus on the topic of pandemics, written from the perspective of an actuary, an epidemiologist, a policy maker, and a technologist. There will also be three case studies on Spanish Flu, HIV/AIDS and Ebola. It will be available on the IFoA's website at the end of June.
