We recently made a submission to the Australian Government on the Mission for Dementia, Ageing and Aged Care Research Future Fund roadmap. The Dementia, Ageing and Aged Care Mission is a research program that is investing $185 million to support older Australians to maintain their health and quality of life as they age, live independently for longer, and access quality care when they need it. The Dementia, Ageing and Aged Care Mission Expert Advisory Panel is developing advice for mission priorities and drafted a roadmap for the mission. We provided a response framed within the World Health Organisation’s Decade of Healthy Ageing which, as regular readers will know, is a major focus for us. The Expert Advisory Panel will consider feedback from the consultation and provide advice to the Minister for Health.
