Dementia: a public health priority

The World Health Authority has published Dementia: a public health priority.  Jointly developed by WHO and Alzheimer’s Disease International, this report aims to raise awareness of dementia as a public health priority, to articulate a public health approach and to advocate for action at international and national levels.  The report is expected to facilitate governments, policy-makers, and other stakeholders to address the impact of dementia as an increasing threat to global health. It is hoped that the report will promote dementia as a public health and social care priority worldwide.
