World Alzheimer Report 2023

The World Alzheimer Report 2023 is now available from Alzheimer’s Disease International (ADI) focusing on risk reduction and the ways in which dementia risk factors are experienced around the world.  Case studies highlight how risk reduction is undertaken in various parts of the world, such as eating healthily, physical exercise, learning, socialising and much else.  In her foreword to the report, ADI CEO Paola Barbarino says the report offers a lot to those who want to take action, despite a “global dereliction of duty” by governments.  “Wearing hearing aids really works, as do dancing, physical and mental exercise… many things can be helpful at a pre-symptomatic stage, and even after a diagnosis,” she writes.
