Abstract

This editorial evaluates the prospects of the National Alzheimer's Project Act (NAPA) succeeding to shape public policies that would substantially increase national expenditures for research on Alzheimer's disease. The essay identifies, in the context of 30-year history, some of the difficult challenges the NAPA Advisory Council must address and offers specific recommendations for an action plan by the Secretary, Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS).
