[Publication report] “Presenting a Global Evidence Base for Dementia Friendly Initiatives” (September 18, 2020)
date : 10/5/2020
The World Dementia Council (WDC) and Health and Global Policy Institute (HGPI) presented a report co-authored by the two organizations entitled “Presenting a Global Evidence Base for Dementia Friendly Initiatives.”
The report is one result of a project established at the summit commemorating the fifth anniversary of the WDC in 2018 which aimed to collect and analyze dementia-friendly policies and regional efforts from every country worldwide. The WDC analyzed academic publications from each country and collected data from regional surveys and gathered opinions and reports from academia or civil society organizations located in countries or regions with advanced dementia policies.
According to original plans, a full report was to be presented in Summer 2020 but was postponed due to the significant effects of COVID-19 in each region. The report currently being presented provides a summary of key findings from the gathered evidence.
