Improving dementia care, research and innovation globally: The World Young Leaders in Dementia join the efforts for a WHO Global Action Plan

The WHO is working to improve the global situation in dementia to lift each country’s response to dementia to a higher level. Therefore, the WHO will soon ask countries all over the world to adopt a set of public health principles and actions which can be considered state-of-the-art responses to dementia. The draft plan will be discussed end of January at the Executive Board. The World Health Assembly may adopt the plan in May.

I recently published a post on the Young Leaders‘ work to join the efforts for this WHO Global Action Plan on the Public Health Response to Dementia. You can find it at our WYLD website here.
