DESK REVIEW | 04.06.02. Are they national or subnational standards/guidelines/protocols?

The existing one is national.

The PERDOSSI guideline is used as a reference by all neurologists practicing in Indonesia, thus, it can be considered a national guideline. To date (27 February 2020), no national guideline on dementia has been issued by the government.

The guidelines are developed by the Ministry of Health, through the National Centre of Technological Excellence in Health (CENETEC), which is a government dependence body whose objective is to provide information based on the best available evidence for appropriate decision-making on health technologies in health services in Mexico, through advice, coordination of sectoral efforts and the generation, integration and dissemination of information.

These guidelines are developed by the SASOP, to be utilised nationally by practicing psychiatrists within the private sector only.
