DESK REVIEW | 04.08.04.02. Dementia being included in another National Plan or policy, such as ageing, or NCDs?

There is no evidence about this question.

Yes, it is possible that dementia may come under future ageing, NCD or other state level plans.

The Ministry of National Development Planning is currently drafting a National Plan on Older People’s Welfare (Kementrian Koordinator Bidang Pembangunan Manusia dan Kebudayaan RI, 2020) and dementia might be included in this plan.

The development of the training manual for community health volunteers on healthy ageing for older persons is likely to lead to a healthy ageing strategy which will cover dementia.

It might be included as an end-goal of NCD prevention and management.
