National Framework for Action on Dementia 2015-2019

Page last updated: 05 December 2019

Dementia has a profound life-changing impact - not only on the person living with dementia, but their carers, family members and friends.

This National Framework for Action on Dementia 2015 - 2019 (the Framework) has been developed under the auspices of the Australian Health Ministers Advisory Council (AHMAC). This Framework builds on the achievements of the previous National Framework for Action on Dementia 2006 – 2010 and aims to further improve the quality of life for those living with dementia and their carers.

The Framework guides the development and implementation of actions, plans and policies to reduce the risk of dementia and improve outcomes for people with dementia and their carers.

Evaluation of the National Framework for Action on Dementia 2015-2019 

In order to explore the effectiveness of the Framework, your input is sought via a public consultation process. 

This consultation will: 

  • evaluate the existing Framework; and 
  • provide an opportunity to inform and scope options for national strategies to address dementia in the future. 

You are invited to take part in the consultation process by completing an online survey

The consultation closes Tuesday 31 December 2019
