Medical Research Future Fund: Mission for Dementia, Ageing and Aged Care

Closed 17 Feb 2020

Opened 18 Jan 2020


The impact of dementia, ageing and aged care in Australia is considerable and continues to grow as the older population of Australia grows.

In December 2018, the Government announced the $185 million Dementia, Aged Care and Ageing Mission (Mission), a medical research package focused on dementia, ageing and aged care funded through the Medical Research Future Fund.

The Mission will fund research to support older Australians to maintain their health and quality of life as they age, live independently for longer and access quality care when they need.

Why your views matter

The Mission Roadmap will assist in the implementation of the Mission including setting key priorities for funding.

A clear and well-focused Roadmap will ultimately increase the success of the Mission and the ability to attract co-investment from other funding sources.

We welcome your feedback on the Mission. The Roadmap can be viewed below. A series of consultation questions are proposed to guide your feedback on the Roadmap.
