Alzheimer Europe Policy Report


On 9th December 2020, Alzheimer Europe launched its 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. 

Recommendations include:

  • 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.
