The 34th REVES (Réseau Espérance de Vie en Santé) meeting will be held in Padova.

The network on health expectancy and the disability process, Réseau Espérance de Vie en Santé (REVES), is an international organization that aims to promote the use of health expectancy, a population health indicator. As disability-free expectancy was the first, and remains a major, health expectancy measure for cross-national comparisons, members of REVES are engaged in the definition, measurement, comparison of disability globally.

Since 1989, the research domains of REVES are: cross-national comparability, socioeconomic and gender differences, trends overtime, computation methods and softwares, contribution of chronic diseases to health expectancy.

The conference will be held at the Botanical Garden in Padova, Italy, on May 24-26, 2023.
