With the recent 73rd World Health Assembly being held online, and rightly focused on the global response to COVID-19, Alzheimer’s Disease International (ADI) has decided to launch our report on progress towards the WHO’s Global action plan on dementia, in late June this year. This is an important opportunity for us to consider the additional challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic and asking how we ensure that we maintain progress towards the WHO’s Global action plan. The 75-minute session will feature an expert panel including speakers from the WHO, Dementia Alliance International (DAI), government representatives and sector specialists.
The event will mark the launch of our new report, ‘From plan to impact III: Maintaining dementia as a priority in unprecedented times’. It is an important opportunity to hear about national progress, development of dementia plans and COVID-19 response and to pose your questions. Vital engagement for people living with dementia, carers, academics, researchers, government and policy officials, Alzheimer and dementia associations, NGOs and anyone affected by dementia.
