Abstract
Dementia is a global phenomenon, yet most people with a diagnosis live in low- and middle-income countries where access to services, support and care are limited. The World Health Organization (WHO) Global action plan on the public health response to dementia 2017–2025 aims to improve the lives of people with dementia and their carers, while decreasing the impact of dementia on communities and countries. Alzheimer’s Disease International (ADI) calls on the international community, in advance of the G7 and G20 planned for 2021, to recognise the growing inequality between different regions of the world in dementia prevention, diagnosis, treatment, care and support.
