Women and Dementia: Not forgotten

This report from the International Longevity Center UK aims to bring together the current evidence on dementia and women, identifying key issues and highlighting areas which merit further public policy, medical or clinical research or intervention.

The report is presented in the form of an evidence review, composed from a
literature review of a range of quantitative and qualitative data including: academic, clinical and
research papers and grey literature.

By approaching dementia through the prism of sex and gender, the report attempts to
understand the complexities of the interaction between biology and socially constructed roles.
