ADI recognises efforts of China's CCTV and Australian Minister with 2013 Award

23 April 2013 - Over the past week, Alzheimer's Disease International has paid recognition for the great efforts carried out by Chinese Central Television (CCTV) and The Hon Mark Butler, Australian Minister for Mental Health and Ageing in improving the lives of people with dementia and their carers.

The ADI Award was presented to CCTV during last week's 28th International Conference of Alzheimer's Disease International. This recognition followed CCTV's recent contribution to raising awareness of dementia through news coverage and support.

The award for The Hon Mark Butler comes after many years of support for the cause from the Australian Minister. His work and support in Australia has positioned the country at the forefront of the dementia cause, influencing governments around the world to develop similar support and service systems. His award was presented yesterday by Alzheimer's Australia President Ita Buttrose at an event in Sydney.
