Draft global action plan on the public health response to dementia Report by the Director-General (2017)

The draft global action plan on the public health response to dementia has close conceptual and strategic links to, and builds upon, other global action plans and strategies adopted or endorsed by the World Health Assembly including: WHO’s Comprehensive mental health action plan 2013–2020, the Global action plan for the prevention and control of noncommunicable diseases 2013–2020, the WHO global disability action plan 2014–2021,3 the Global strategy and plan of action on ageing and health 2016–2020,4 and the Global Strategy on Human Resources for Health. It also draws on regional action plans, including WHO/PAHO’s Strategy and Plan of Action on Dementias in Older Persons 2015–2019.

The draft action plan builds upon a report, jointly published by WHO and Alzheimer’s Disease International in 2012, on dementia as a public health priority7 and the outcome of the First Ministerial Conference on the Global Action against Dementia (Geneva, 16 and 17 March 2015). It is also aligned with the objectives of WHO’s Global Dementia Observatory, a monitoring and knowledge exchange platform that is being established, inter alia to strengthen health systems and policies related to the treatment and care of dementia.
