View of Dementia from a Public Health and Population Perspective
This presentation will draw on population studies conducted over the last 30 years. Society, demography and profiles of health have all changed during this time period in ways that have profoundly affected the way we view dementia.
Population studies have been part of this transformation, providing evidence for change and evidence of change. These are important across the globe in different ways for different groups and for structures within and across societies, including how we think about how we address Sustainable Development Goals and improve social justice.
