Netherlands publishes newnational dementia strategy2021-2030

Tuesday 01 December 2020

The Dutch Government has published a new National Dementia Sstrategy 2021-2030, outlining its future priorities in relation to dementia policy in the country. The strategy is focused around three overarching themes:

  • A world without dementia – focusing on dementia research.
  • Persons with dementia matter – focusing on reducing stigma and prejudice.
  • Tailor-made support when living with dementia – focusing on improving supports and services.

Each of the sections provides an analysis of the challenged faced, what the strategy aims to do and how it intends to meet the aim. In addition to the overarching themes, the strategy also identifies four underlying areas which are key to ensuring the success of the strategy. These include:

  • Innovation – focusing on the use of both technological and non-technological developments
  • Young person with dementia – focusing on the specific needs of this population
  • International – focusing on collaborations in relation to dementia research
  • Communication – focusing on sharing the knowledge and experiences acquired from the work of the strategy.
