There have been concerns, recently, regarding the future of European health policy. A joint letter, signed by AE and 38 other organisations, has been sent to President Jean Claude Junker highlighting these fears and asking for an urgent meeting. We remain optimistic and will keep you appraised of any updates.
On 27 June, Alzheimer Europe held a successful lunch debate in the European Parliament chaired by MEP Deirdre Clune (Ireland), which focused on the current and future treatment of Alzheimer’s dementia.
Our new publication, the European Dementia Monitor 2017, was launched during the AE lunch debate on 27 June. The objective of the report is to provide a benchmark of national dementia policies in order to compare and rate the responses of European countries to the dementia challenge.
On 28 June 2017, the third National Dementia Strategy for Scotland was launched, news which was welcomed by Alzheimer Scotland, who said this “demonstrates a long-term commitment from the Scottish Government to improve the lives of people with dementia and those who care for them in Scotland".
Early Bird rates for our 27th Annual Conference (27AEC) have now ended and we are delighted to announce that we already have almost 600 delegates registered, with many more expected between now and close of registrations on 22 September 2017.
