Alzheimer Europe discusses collaboration with World Dementia Envoy

Saturday 19 July 2014

On 19 July, Jean Georges, the AE Executive Director met with Dr Dennis Gillings, the World Dementia Envoy and a delegation of the UK Department of Health.

During the meeting, the World Dementia Envoy presented various initiatives undertaken since the G8 Dementia Summit in London in December 2013. In particular, the exchange covered the regulatory framework for the evaluation and authorisation of new medicines.  Dr Gillings made a strong case for the introduction of new incentives to speed up and improve the development process of new, much needed treatments for Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia.

Jean Georges confirmed the commitment of Alzheimer Europe to support greater international collaboration on dementia and to collaborate with the World Dementia Council in approaching the European Medicines Agency and other European institutions to develop a new and adapted framework for the development of Alzheimer’s medicines.
