As actuaries, we know the impact good physical and mental health can have on morbidity and mortality rates. But how much attention do we give to our own body and mind health? Sometimes it is just little changes we can make that can lead to big impacts on how we feel and function.
Whether you work in financial services, insurance, superannuation, wealth management, government or other sectors, actuaries play an important role in contributing to the wellbeing of others. Actuaries support the health and financial wellbeing of others through our professional contributions across a range of industries. But are we doing enough to look after our own wellbeing and the wellbeing of our teams?
I was fortunate to be awarded the ILO Impact Insurance Fellowship in late-2020, to assist the National Health Insurance Authority in Ghana on financial projection and analytical capacity building. Last month, the Actuaries Institute invited me to present at a Virtual Insights session, where I advised how actuaries can help developing countries on social health insurance.
