– Question No 29 by Claude Moraes (H-0149/09)

Subject: EU Alzheimer’s strategy

In February the UK announced its National Dementia Strategy, which will provide investment in a network of memory clinics, improve support for people affected by the condition and launch major public awareness campaigns. Furthermore, in Strasbourg on 5 February Parliament adopted Written Declaration 0080/2008 - http://www.europarl.europa.eu/sides/getDoc.do?type=TA&reference=P6-TA-2009-0081&language=SL" encouraging the recognition of Alzheimer’s as a European public health priority.

What initiatives is the Commission planning in this area, in terms of research, prevention and public awareness raising?

Will the Commission consider creating a European Alzheimer’s strategy similar to that in the UK, particularly taking into account recommendations from the European Collaboration on Dementia Project which have already been presented to the Commission?
