2016 Lunch of 2nd Joint Action on Dementia

EU Action on Dementia

Building on the success of ALCOVE (Alzheimer Cooperative Valuation in Europe), the first Joint Action on Dementia, the European Commission supported the launch of a 2nd Joint Action through its health programme

On 3 March 2016 in Luxembourg experts from 10 European countries and from Alzheimer Europe participated in the kick-off meeting of the Joint Action to discuss the methodology, proposed actions and the budgetary implications of this collaboration between EU Member States. The action will be led by the Scottish Government on behalf of the United Kingdom with participation from Bulgaria, France, Greece, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Romania, Spain and the Department of Health from the United Kingdom. In addition, Cyprus, Germany, Luxembourg, Malta, Portugal as well as Alzheimer Europe will contribute to the Joint Action as collaborating stakeholders.

The aim of this 2nd Joint Action is to provide practical guidance for policy makers developing and implementing their national dementia plans, policies and strategies and will focus on four key areas:

  1. Diagnosis and post-diagnostic support
  2. Crisis and care coordination
  3. Residential care
  4. Dementia-friendly communities
