Dementia: A Public Health Priority

A report released April 11, 2012, by the World Health Organization (WHO) and Alzheimer’s Disease International (ADI), Dementia: A Public Health Priority,  calls upon governments, policymakers and other stakeholders to make dementia a global public health priority.

This new report provides the most authoritative overview of the impact of dementia worldwide. 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 from low- and middle-income countries, thereby dramatically underscoring that this is truly a global problem and not just a “disease of the industrial world.

Interesting post. Seriously, it is quite scary to think about how much isn't considered when it comes to health of loved ones. You go most of your life without being suitably covered.
