Global status report on the public health response to dementia

Abstract
This report finds that only a quarter of countries worldwide have a national policy, strategy or plan for supporting people with dementia and their families. Half of these countries are in WHO’s European Region, with the remainder split between the other regions. Yet even in Europe, many plans are expiring or have already expired, indicating a need for renewed commitment from governments. At the same time, the number of people living with dementia is growing according to the report: WHO estimates that more than 55 million people (8.1 per cent of women and 5.4 per cent of men over 65 years) are living with dementia. This number is estimated to rise to 78 million by 2030 and to 139 million by 2050.
