Vitality is a personalized and engaging program that can be accessed through a fun-to-use mobile application.

In Argentina, Prudential Seguros, a life insurance industry leader, is the first company to offer membership to the Vitality Program, included as a benefit and supplement to its insurance policies. "This alliance allows us to reinforce our goal aimed at the Total Welfare of our clients, which includes not only protecting them financially, ensuring their future and for their families, but also ensuring that they live longer and better. In this case, through a leading global welfare program. Indeed, this adds value to the communities in which we operate as well as contributes to reducing the cost of the insurance" stated Mauricio Zanatta, President and CEO of Prudential Seguros.
The launch is taking place in Buenos Aires with the participation of the Argentinean brand ambassadors: former Olympic swimmer José Meolans and sports journalist Catu Bonadeo. The press conference will be hosted by Juan Pablo Varsky and the launch cocktail will be conducted by Sergio Lapegüe.
From May 2020, Vitality will be also available to companies through Wellcorp, with the aim of improving the productivity and commitment of employees through the enhancement of their health, which also will impact in companies' profitability.
According to the World Health Organization, one of the four risk factors that lead to four chronic diseases (cardiovascular, respiratory, cancer and diabetes) is physical inactivity - along with an unbalanced diet, tobacco use and excessive alcohol consumption.
