The resources are for policy-makers, health- and social-care providers, civil society organizations and people living with dementia and their carers. They recommend action in a number of areas including advocating for policy change, raising public awareness, creating dementia-friendly communities, and catalysing research and innovation.

The information sheets are based on the Global action plan on the public health response to dementia, endorsed by the World Health Assembly in May 2017.
