Description

El Plan Andaluz de Alzheimer que aúna y coordina el esfuerzo estratégico de las Consejerías de Salud y para la Igualdad y Bienestar Social con el fin de seguir impulsando las medidas necesarias en el ámbito de las personas y familias afectadas del mal de Alzheimer. Todo ello bajo los principios de universalidad, equidad, solidaridad y accesibilidad, que son compartidos tanto por el Sistema Sanitario Público como por el Sistema de Servicios Sociales de Andalucía. La necesidad de impulsar actuaciones y medidas encaminadas a mejorar la calidad de vida de las personas afectadas de la enfermedad de Alzheimer, y sus familiares, se hace evidente al constatar que este problema de salud constituye actualmente la primera causa de demencia en los países desarrollados así como una de las principales causas de mortalidad entre las personas adultas.

The Alzheimer’s Plan combines and coordinates the strategic effort of the Ministries of Health and Equality and Social Welfare in order to further develop measures for people and families affected by Alzheimer's disease. This plan is created under the principles of universality, equity, solidarity and accessibility, which are shared both by the public health system and by the system of social services of Andalusia. The need to promote actions and measures aimed at improving the quality of life of people affected by Alzheimer's disease, and their families is evident to see as this health problem is currently the leading cause of dementia in the country as well as one of the leading causes of mortality among adults.
