WHO to develop a Global Action Plan on Dementia

We are excited to share news that the Executive Board of the World Health Organization (WHO) has approved a proposal to develop a Global Action Plan on Dementia.

The unanimous decision followed the involvement of ADI and 12 countries at a successful side event on dementia during the 69th World Health Assembly (WHA) and a focus throughout the week on NCDs and healthy ageing. A proposal to develop a global plan on dementia received critical support from the governments of Switzerland and Dominican Republic, with agreement from all 33 members of the WHO executive board.

More information will be available on our website in the next few days. Read ADI’s intervention at the World Health Assembly.
