The World Dementia Council (WDC) was formed following the G8 Dementia Summit held in London in December 2013. The 12th meeting of the WDC was convened jointly with HGPI in Japan in March 2018. During that meeting, WDC members discussed the state of efforts in key areas since the 2013 Summit and actions that need to be taken to accelerate progress. Members agreed to focus on four areas: awareness, research, care, and risk reduction. On the sidelines of the WDC12 meeting, HGPI also worked with media organizations from Japan and the United Kingdom (Nikkei and the Financial Times) to organize a Japan-UK Dementia Conference. During this conference, guests shared knowledge about dementia from Japan and the United Kingdom, and had an in-depth discussion on how to create and make use of international Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs).
For the 69th Breakfast Meeting, HGPI will host a talk by Dr. Miharu Nakanishi, Chief Researcher of Mental Health and Nursing Research Team, Mental Health Promotion Project in the Tokyo Metropolitan Institute of Medical Science, Japan. Dr. Nakanishi attended WDC12 as well as the Japan-UK Dementia Conference as member of the World Young Leaders in Dementia (WYLD) network. Dr. Nakanishi will talk about the latest issues being discussed around the world related to dementia, including the mission of WYLD and the promotion of dementia-friendly community development efforts.
