Quality Insurance Company Launches National Summit on Aging
Quality Insurance Company (QIC) has launched its National Summit on Aging.
The summit, the first of its kind, is organized in partnership with the Center for Studies in Aging at the University of Ghana.

“As an insurance company, we are in this world to make a profit. But can we make profits with people who are not happy? Baby boomers who are all over 60 have the highest disposable income and this is the generation we are talking about. We need to make them happy so that we can also take advantage of some of this disposable income with our insurance products; Our car insurance, our retirement and our life insurance.
“That’s why we are here, that’s why we are the organizer. We decided that we wanted to enter this space. We launched it today and I am looking forward to the summit in December,” he added.
For her part, the director of the Center for Studies on Aging expressed concern about the delays with the passage of the Elderly Bill to help address the challenges faced by the elderly in the country.
“The rationale for this media launch is to raise awareness of the summit we plan to hold in December 2022 to highlight the needs, challenges and contributions of our older people in society,” he said. she stated.
She wanted the bill to be passed quickly so that the rights of these people would be respected.
“We think it needs to be passed now because it sets the framework within which the rights of older people would be upheld, because once you say society is responsible for older people, who and who should do what,” a- she indicated. .
