Dementia is a concerning issue since the same leaves one with sufferings like difficulty in talking or fragile body. But, according to Ita Buttrose, the more the condition needs to be addressed the less it is being funded by the Federal Government, as per a recent report.
Ms. Buttrose is the president of Alzheimer's Australia and has been requesting the government now to commit a notable amount for research into the disease. The urges are being seen after a report by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW) that 300,000 Australians are currently facing the illness.
It has been informed that while the number of sufferers may rise to 300,000 by 2020, the same may be seen tripling, i. e. nearly one million, when 2050 arrives. The figures are indeed worrisome, especially when no effective cure is available for treating the disease. Policymakers are being hoped to be cautious and invest more into the illness’ research.
It is being said that more research may ultimately mean a promising treatment. “As any person with friends who have dementia knows it has a marked impact on quality of life not only for those with the condition but their families as well”, said AIHW Director David Kalisch.
