In April 2017, GCOA launched the first ever Dementia Innovation Readiness Index, a comprehensive evaluation of innovation in dementia treatment, prevention, and care across G7 countries. The Index examines the current landscape in which actions to combat dementia are occurring in terms of the enablers of and barriers to innovation. By doing so across the G7 countries, the Index draws out best practices and identifies areas needing improvement. The Index launched in Kyoto, Japan, at 32nd International Conference of Alzheimer’s Disease International.
GCOA will launch an update to the Index at ADI on July 27, 2018.
