UK government responds to Raj Long’s report

In 2013, the UK hosted the G8 Dementia Summit and subsequently coordinated global activity around Dementia. One strand of work has led to the publication, in July 2015, of Raj Long’s independent report Finding a path for a cure for Dementia: An independent report into an integrated approach to dementia drug development.

The Department of Health has produced a response to Raj Long’s report, in the form of an open letter to Raj, alongside a Strategy Report. The response outlines the departments continued commitment to this work, and suggests how we might work with partners to take it forward as part of the wider continuity model for Global Action Against Dementia.
