National Framework for Action on Dementia 2015-2019

Page last updated: 15 February 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.
