CDC’s Healthy Brain Initiative
In 2006, Congress appropriated funds to CDC’s Healthy Aging
Program to “address brain health with a focus on lifestyle issues”
Goals of The Healthy Brain Initiative:
Better understand the publics’ perceptions about cognitive
health and burden of cognitive impairment through public
health surveillance systems
Build a strong evidence base for policy, communication, and
programmatic interventions
Translate that foundation into effective public health practice by
public health departments and their partners in states and
communities

2007 HBI Road Map
2007 HBI Road Map served as a catalyst for numerous
accomplishments* on the part of multiple stakeholders
Healthy People 2020, “Dementias, including Alzheimer’s
disease”
To increase the proportion of persons with diagnosed Alzheimer’s
disease and other dementias, or their caregiver, who are aware of
the diagnosis.
To reduce the proportion of preventable hospitalizations in
persons with diagnosed Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.
