On July 27, 2017, Howard Koh and colleagues from Harvard University, Boston, in the prestigious Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), highlighted the importance of spirituality and religiosity for the health of humans in their article entitled “Health and Spirituality” (VanderWeele et al., JAMA online 27.7.2017, here free online access).
The Lancet Commission “Dementia Prevention, Intervention and Care” published its report on 20 July 2017 in the prestigious journal Lancet (Livingston et al., Lancet, published online July 20, 2017). The authors describe dementia as the “greatest global challenge to health and social systems in the 21st century”.
