Overseas Health insurance News: 'More funding needed' for dementia research

Only by carrying out much more research can a cure for Alzheimer's disease be found, an expert has claimed.

In comments that may interest customers of international healthcare, media manager at the Alzheimer's Society Hananh Clack said now is an "exciting time" for research into the condition, as "we are learning more and more" about it.

However, she added: "We still need more funding for research to be able to understand the exact causes."

Ms Clack said the promise of more government financial support for this is "fantastic", but noted this "opportunity of a generation" needs to be translated into action in research to ensure current and future sufferers can be helped.

Care services minister Paul Burstow announced extra funding for Alzheimer's research on June 28th, with 17 representatives from different organisations across the health, university, industry, charity and state sectors coming together to seek ways in which research can be accelerated.
