The National Plan to Address Alzheimer's Disease requires the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' (HHS') Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation (ASPE) and the Administration for Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (AIDD) within the HHS Administration for Community Living (ACL) to establish a task force to create a plan of action to address the needs of specific populations disproportionally affected by Alzheimer's disease. These populations include people with younger-onset dementia, racial and ethnic minorities, and persons with Down syndrome and other intellectual disabilities.1 This report summarizes input and recommendations received from a wide variety of stakeholders for consideration by the members of the Federal Interagency Task Force.
