The World Health Organization estimates 36 million people worldwide are living with dementia, with the global cost of dementia estimated at US$604 billion.
The staggering economic impact that dementia has globally highlights the urgent need for global experts to come together to encourage new research into dementia. To this end the Council will work over the next year to identify the barriers to innovation and to facilitate international investment. （From UK Government website World Dementia Council meets for the first time (Press release)）
