“The Global Impact of Dementia 2013-2050” policy brief released by Alzheimer’s Disease International reveals that the number of people living with dementia worldwide in 2013 is now estimated at 44 million, reaching 76 million in 2030 and 135 million by 2050. The U.K.-based group’s 2010 estimate of Alzheimer’s worldwide was 35 million. Interestingly, the study finds that 58 percent live in low- and middle-income countries and predicts that figure will grow to 71 percent by 2050. http://tinyurl.com/ptwbwvk
