Developing dementia treatments: response to Raj Long’s report

Department of Health response to Raj Long’s independent report on the challenges faced when developing treatments for dementia.



In 2013 the UK hosted the G8 Dementia Summit and subsequently co-ordinated global activity around dementia. One strand of work led to Raj Long’s independent report, ‘Finding a path for the cure for dementia’.

The Department of Health’s response outlines our continued commitment to this work, and suggests how we might work with partners to take it forward as part of the wider continuity model for global action against dementia. Working with partners will allow the continuation of integrated development work in finding a cure or disease-modifying therapy for dementia.
