A report released today by the World Health Organization (WHO) and Alzheimer’s Disease International (ADI) calls upon governments, policymakers and other stakeholders to make dementia a global public health priority.
Alzheimer's Reading Room
This new report provides the most authoritative overview of the impact of dementia worldwide.
Dementia: A Public Health Priority
To prepare the report, the World Health Organization and ADI commissioned reports from four working groups of experts and sought additional inputs from nearly two dozen international contributors and more than 20 expert reviewers.
In addition to valuable best practices and practical case studies from around the world, it contains the most comprehensive collection of data, including hard-to-get statistics, thereby dramatically underscoring that this is truly a global problem and not just a “disease of the industrial world.”
