Welcome To The International Social Wellbeing Conference 2024 (ISWC 2024)!

ISWC 2024 gathers policymakers, industry players, academics, and the public for shared discussions on trends, challenges, and innovative solutions in the social protection landscape. The conference is an annual event organised by the EPF in collaboration with the Ministry of Finance Malaysia, the Implementation Coordination Unit of the Prime Minister’s Office, the International Social Security Association (ISSA), and the ASEAN Social Security Association (ASSA).

This year’s theme, "Ageing and Longevity: Towards a Meaningful Retirement," addresses issues that shape ageing and retirement, with a focus on income security for the elderly. ISWC 2024 delves into the impacts of an ageing population on productivity and the economy, while exploring policies and infrastructure needed to support the elderly.  The conference will examine Malaysia's readiness for the demographic shift, particularly in terms of financial security, mental wellbeing, and healthier lifestyles.

With diverse experts, policymakers, and stakeholders in social protection convening at ISWC 2024, all participants will have the opportunity to exchange insights, explore innovative approaches, and inspire proactive actions to enhance the wellbeing of the elderly, families, and society.

Join us in paving the way to building a resilient and inclusive society where everyone can live well and step into the golden years with dignity.
