Health Surveys: “World Alzheimer Report 2019” Reveals The Attitudes And Perceptions To Dementia

From the The 2019 World Report:

At the core of the 2019 report are the results of a global survey, commissioned by ADI and undertaken by the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE). Almost 70,000 people globally engaged with the survey, making it the biggest of its kind ever undertaken.
