World Alzheimer Reports
Long-term care - World Alzheimer Report 2013
The World Alzheimer Report 2013 is themed around long-term care. The report provides information about this important issue, aiding all stakeholders in the long journey of dementia care. The report includes information on the cost and effectiveness of care and makes important recommendations which should be the fundamental drivers of long-term care policy in dementia.
Overcoming stigma - World Alzheimer Report 2012
The World Alzheimer Report 2012 shares results from an international survey of people with dementia and carers on their personal experiences of stigma. The report also provides information on stigma and dementia, highlights programmes from around the world, and makes important recommendations which could help reduce stigma.
Early diagnosis and intervention - World Alzheimer Report 2011
The World Alzheimer Report 2011 shows that there are interventions that are effective in the early stages of dementia, some of which may be more effective when started earlier, and that there is a strong economic argument in favour of earlier diagnosis and timely intervention.
The World Alzheimer Report 2010 provides the clearest, most comprehensive global picture yet of the economic impact of Alzheimer's disease and dementia.
The report includes an estimate of the worldwide cost of dementia, including direct medical costs, direct non-medical costs and costs of informal (family) care. The estimates are broken down by world region and include analysis of the differences between low and high income countries. The report also contains important policy recommendations and makes clear to key decision-makers that doing nothing is not an option.
The World Alzheimer Report 2009 presents a comprehensive global prevalence study of dementia and looks at levels of mortality, disability, strain on carers and dependency. The report offers examples of good national dementia plans and information on health service responses and includes recommendations that provide a global framework for action on dementia.
The report also includes an overview of what dementia is - the pathology, clinical features, course and management of dementia.
