Europe wide plan for Alzheimer's9th August 2006
Member countries must devise a concerted plan to deal with the devastating social and medical consequences of the growing numbers of people living with Alzheimer's disease, says the European Parliament. 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.
