WHO calls for submissions for GDO knowledge exchange platform

Wednesday 26 February 2020

The World Health Organization (WHO) is requesting submissions for the Knowledge Exchange Platform of the Global Dementia Observatory (GDO), an online database which includes country-level information on policy, service delivery, population needs and research related to dementia. Alzheimer Europe and its member associations play an important role in creating the GDO as a vibrant platform for up-to-date information relevant to all countries.

The GDO Knowledge Exchange Platform contains key resources to support the implementation of the WHO’s Global Dementia Action Plan, as well as enhancing country-level responses to dementia. By providing a space for all relevant stakeholders to share resources, whether through good policy, clinical guidelines, or examples of effective interventions, the platform aims to facilitate mutual learning and the exchanging of good practices in the area of dementia.

The WHO is calling for submissions of resources for the GDO. Resources can be from a broad spectrum, ranging from national plans and laws, to local initiatives that work well in communities. All resources will undergo a peer-review process and will be mapped to the strategic action areas of the Global Dementia Action Plan. The WHO is looking for a wide range of geographical, linguistic, cultural, and contextual diversity, and strongly encourages all who are interested to submit resources! The new GDO Knowledge Exchange Platform will go live in 2020.
