More support is needed, particularly in
low- and middle-income countries

Currently more than 55 million people live with dementia worldwide, and there are nearly 10 million new cases every year. Alzheimer's disease is the most common form of dementia and may contribute to 60-70% of cases.

 

Eighty Nine percent of countries reporting to WHO’s Global Dementia Observatory say they provide some community-based services for dementia. Medication for dementia, hygiene products, assistive technologies and household adjustments are also more accessible in high-income countries, with a greater level of reimbursement, than in lower-income countries.*
