Calls to action

  • Governments should act on evidence on brain health, including evidence on the link between heart and brain health, and share emerging learnings about successful public health strategies.
  • WHO should support/facilitate integration of dementia risk reduction in NCD programmes.
  • OECD should undertake an assessment of the effectiveness of strategies to reduce the cost of dementia for health and care systems. This should include supporting people who are caregivers, and where possible people who have dementia, to remain active in the labour market.
