Symposium: Hong Kong and Global Responses to Dementia
Date & time: February  18, 2023(Sat) 2:30pm - 4:00pm (HKT)

Location:  Zoom & Social Science Chamber, 11/F,  Jockey Club Tower, The University of Hong Kong ​​

From risk reduction, treatment, family support to environment modifications, responses to dementia require clear policy goals and coordinated strategies. In this seminar, global works related to developing, financing, planning, implementing and evaluating national dementia plans will be introduced. With the world’s greatest number of people with dementia, China has launched a national dementia action plan as part of its Action Plan for Healthy China 2030. Earlier in seven low-and-middle-income countries and lately in England, the STRiDE (Strengthening Responses to Dementia, https://stride-dementia.org/) project examined current practice to help people living with dementia to live well, and to ensure that family and other carers do not face excessive costs that could impoverish them or compromise their own health. In Hong Kong, TIP-CARD (https://www.tip-card.hku.hk/)uses clinical, economics, and policy research methods to recommend actions in response to dementia care. The seminar will share key findings and next steps from these works led by HKU, PKU and LSE.
