Global report on dementia calls for 'brain health' to be adopted by health services world-wide

 

The World Innovation Summit for Health (WISH), a global initiative of Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development, has published a report aiming to tackle the global rise in dementia and identify triggers for treatment, care and funding.

The report explores a wide range of dementia-related issues, including the current barriers and challenges to addressing dementia, and innovative solutions; including raising public awareness, care innovations, new financial models and more effective regulatory frameworks.

It offers 10 key policy recommendations for governments to consider, aimed at improving both outcomes for individuals living with dementia and for economies struggling to pay for the costs of caring for dementia.
