National Plan to Address Alzheimer's Disease: 2018 Update. Goal 1: Prevent and Effectively Treat Alzheimer's Disease and Related Dementias by 2025

10/19/2018

Research continues to expand our understanding of the causes of, treatments for, and prevention of AD/ADRD. This goal seeks to develop effective prevention and treatment modalities by 2025. Ongoing research and clinical inquiry can inform our ability to delay onset of AD/ADRD, minimize its symptoms, and delay its progression. Under this goal, HHS will prioritize and accelerate the pace of scientific research and ensure that as evidence-based solutions are identified they are quickly translated, put into practice, and brought to scale so that individuals with AD/ADRD can benefit from increases in scientific knowledge. HHS will identify interim milestones and set ambitious deadlines for achieving these milestones in order to meet this goal.
