There has been reform within the World Dementia Council (WDC). The changes are intended to make this body “more representative” in global terms (if such were possible) and fully independent. The Council now includes a wider range of international leaders.
“Dr Gillings handed over the post as Chair of the Council to Dr Yves Joanette, Scientific Director at the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) Institute of Aging, and Vice-Chair, Raj Long, Senior Advisor at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation”.
