Alzheimer's Disease Public Policy Overview Certificate

National, state/regional and local governments are paying more attention to the problem of Alzheimer's disease and related dementia, frequently designating staff to facilitate dementia planning processes or implement programs. Forty-nine states, Washington, D.C. and Puerto Rico have dementia plans and 7 states are updating plans that are 5 years old. Chile just became the 30th nation with a national plan; the World Health Organization (WHO) has just established a target of all nations having a plan or substantial Alzheimer's disease policy or program within a broader national policy frame such as a non-communicable disease plan in the next 5 years. This certificate offers age care professionals training in Alzheimer's disease/dementia issues, information about effective policy approaches, and resources to mobilize activities that make sense for governments at different levels.
