Neuro reviews – 2014

The number of people with dementia worldwide is projected to reach 135 million by 2050 and, as highlighted in a new report, more than half of these people are expected to be living in Asia-Pacific countries. Some countries in the region are preparing for this growing burden by improving awareness, diagnosis, and care for people affected by dementia, but many governments are not doing enough and could be sleep-walking into a dementia crisis.
