Together with nine other organizations (see below), IAHSA has issued a statement urging the United Nations to add ageing and dementia, alongside cardiovascular disease, diabetes, cancer and chronic respiratory diseases, to the list of non-communicable diseases to be discussed by global heads of state at the United Nations Summit on Non-communicable Diseases (NCDs) this September.  The statement outlines the necessity for ageing and dementia to be included and the commitments the group believes should be made to these causes during the Summit.  Take a few minutes to read the statement and share your thoughts with IAHSA.
