Draft National Plan To Address Alzheimer's Disease
Source: U.S. Department of Health and Human Services
From the report:
This plan includes a detailed listing of current federal activities and, as directed by [the National Alzheimer’s Project Act], initial recommendations for priority actions to expand, eliminate, coordinate or condense programs. The activities outlined in this plan vary in scope and impact and include: (1) immediate actions that the federal government will take; (2) actions toward the goals that can be initiated by the federal government or its public and private partners in the near term; and (3) longer-range goals that will require numerous actions to achieve. This is a National Plan and not a federal plan. It will require the active engagement of public and private sector stakeholders to achieve. In the case of many of the long-range goals, the path forward will be contingent on resources, scientific progress, and focused collaborations across many partners. Over time, HHS will work with the Advisory Council [on Alzheimer’s Research, Care, and Services] and stakeholders to add additional transformative actions.
This draft of the National Plan is being submitted to the Advisory Council for consideration and input. It will also be open for public comment. Comments can be submitted to Helen Lamont (email@example.com) and will be accepted until March 30, 2012.
