A report of the first year of the UK Prime Minister’s Challenge on Dementia has been published

The achievements against the three main areas of the challenge are described, with progress reports from the three Dementia Challenge Champion Groups on:
1. Driving improvements in health and care.
2. Creating dementia friendly communities.
3. Better dementia-related research.

Also, Prime Minister David Cameron recently announced that a G8 dementia-specific summit will be held in the UK in September 2013, allowing health and science ministers, international leading experts, senior industry leaders and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) to achieve more coordination and collaboration on dementia R&D globally.
