About the report
The report takes a fresh approach this year. It is different in look, in feel and in tone. We commissioned the journalist, writer and broadcaster, Christina Patterson, to interview 21 of the leading lights in dementia research across the globe. We interviewed researchers from Argentina, Australia, Canada, Japan, Nigeria, Singapore, Sweden, the UK, and the USA. The report appeals to a really broad audience including governments and policymakers, academics and researchers and the general public with an interest in dementia. It covers a lot of ground and answers a lot of complex questions that continually present themselves in our work. Hopefully you will also agree that this publication justifies ADI’s call for increased research expenditure in dementia.
Essentially the report is an overview of where we are currently: the hopes and frustrations, the barriers, the enablers and the ground-breaking work being undertaken.
The report’s key calls-to-action:
About World Alzheimer’s Month 2018
The World Health Organisation recognised the scale of the epidemic by introducing the Global action plan on the public health response to dementia 2017-2025 but progress towards developing national plans in 75% of Member States by 2025 has been slow and we must galvanise governments to develop and fund plans in response.
We are hoping to make versions of the report available in other languages in the near future.
