Every six months, the Presidency of the EU’S Council of Ministers rotates, giving each national government a turn to chair meetings, lead negotiations, and set the policy agenda. Right now, the Italian government holds the Presidency. At one of their key events, this week, they will host a conference on “Dementia in Europe: a challenge for our common future.”
While the Italian Presidency takes the opportunity to focus on dementia, we’re following their lead by giving you a chance to test your knowledge on one of the most common forms of dementia – Alzheimer’s disease.
Do you know how many people in the world are living with dementia? What do you think was the total world-wide cost of dementia in 2010?
The answers may surprise you. I hope that, above all, the answers help inspire action to help make life better for people living with Alzheimer’s and dementia, and the community that surrounds them.
