Bangladesh - Dementia Friendly Communities

Though still in its early stages, Bangladesh is one of the first low and middle-income countries to step into the realm of dementia friendly communities. The Alzheimer’s Society of Bangladesh has formed a Dementia Friendly Activity Team to identify barriers and discover solutions to creating dementia friendly communities throughout the country. To date, their Dementia Friendly Activity Plan has guided education programmes for the public and service providers in how to recognise if someone may have dementia and how best to support them.
