Alzheimer's 'has never really been acknowledged as a priority by competent authorities at national level' it says.

Alzheimer Europe, which is a charity with EU funding, is developing guidelines and indicators on the disease which it is hoped will help member states monitor prevalence, agree a consensus on prevalence rates and develop Europe-wide guidelines on diagnosis and treatment.
