[Registration Closed] 75th Breakfast Meeting –Learning from Scotland about promote respect for the rights and community development for creating a society in which people with dementia can live with hope (February 15, 2019)
date : 1/16/2019
Registration has been closed.
It is estimated that the number of people living with dementia will increase to about 7 million in Japan and about 75 million worldwide in 2030. Building a dementia-friendly society is clearly a healthcare issue facing the entire world, and Japan has come to recognize the importance of this endeavor more and more in recent years.
In the field of dementia, HGPI has continuously provided policy recommendations and has undertaken various initiatives to create a society in which people with dementia and their families can be actively involved. Our activities include providing support to the G8 Global Dementia Legacy Event and side meetings in 2015; collaborating with the World Dementia Council (WDC); conducting the “Initiative for the Advancement of Dementia Research and Social System Innovation through Global Public Private Partnerships (PPP)”; and jointly operating the “Co-Creation Hub for a Dementia-Friendly Future.”
Recently, the Japan Dementia Working Group (JDWG) announced the Declaration of Hope on Living with Dementia, and there have been other efforts towards creating a society that enables people with dementia continue to live well with hope and dignity after diagnosis.
HGPI will host a Breakfast Meeting featuring Mr. Jim Pearson, Director of Policy & Research at Alzheimer Scotland. Alzheimer Scotland is an NGO which plays a central role in joint efforts with the government of Scotland that promote respect for the rights of people with dementia and hasten the development of a dementia-friendly society. To ensure that the rights of people with dementia and their families are respected throughout society, Scotland enacted the Charter of Rights in 2009. At this meeting, Alzheimer Scotland’s activities and their part in the Scottish Government’s Dementia National Strategy will be introduced. We will also discuss future visions for Japan.
*This meeting will be held in English (No simultaneous translation will be available).
