9 December 2020, during an online European Parliament workshop hosted by Sirpa Pietikäinen MEP (Finland), Alzheimer Europe will launch its new report “Dementia as a European Priority – A Policy Overview” which takes stock of dementia policy at an EU level and sets out recommendations for future priorities across Europe.
• Prioritising dementia research in EU Research Programmes (including Horizon Europe), providing a fair allocation of resources and funding for existing programmes and better coordination between programmes
• Prioritising dementia within policies relating to chronic diseases, mental health and ageing, both at an EU and national level
• Supporting Member States to work towards the implementation of the World Health Organization’s Global Action Plan on Dementia 2017–2025
• Recognising dementia as a disability and including dementia in disability policies.
