Alzheimer’s Declared a Public Health Crisis

A new report from the World Health Organization (WHO) and Alzheimer’s Disease International(ADI) calls for nations to make dementia an international public health priority, declaring dementia a public health crisis (Dementia: A Public Health Priority. 2012: WHO Press, World Health Organization, 20 Avenue, Appia, 1211 Geneva 27, Switzerland, ISBN 978 92 4 156445 8).

Unfortunately, incredibly, in this 112 page report and all the media coverage of it, no mention is made of how to fund care for those afflicted with Alzheimer’s!
