The Morrison Government’s $185 million Dementia, Ageing and Aged Care Mission has taken another positive step forward today, with the release of the draft Roadmap for public consultation.
The consultation will present the Australian public with an opportunity to assess the draft Roadmap, and offer feedback on the current strategy.
It will ultimately assist the Government as it seeks to prioritise funding for critical dementia and aged care research.
Minister for Health, Greg Hunt, described dementia as “one of Australia and the world’s greatest health challenges,” but said it was a challenge the Morrison Government was “deeply committed to.”
“Greater research into dementia is vital, but it’s important to ensure the research is targeted to have the greatest impact” Minister Hunt said.
