The first ministerial WHO conference on global action against dementia in 2015 stated, "We need to invest more in research to develop a drug, but also to improve the quality of life of people with dementia and the support of their caregivers."

For complex challenges an interdisciplinary synthesis can be more important and more relevant than technical and disciplinary expertise. Global problems require an international synthesis.
