Improving Care For Populations Disproportionally Affected by Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Dementias: Report From the Task Force on Specific Populations


The National Plan to Address Alzheimer's Disease required the establishment of a task force to create a plan of action to address the needs of specific populations disproportionately 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. This report summarizes input and recommendations received from a wide variety of stakeholders for consideration by the members of the Federal Interagency Task Force.

The 21 recommendations are grouped into three categories:
(1) recommendations for further exploration,
(2) recommendations that are being addressed by existing work, and
(3) recommendations beyond the scope of the National Plan.
