The number of people suffering from dementia around the world is set to rise significantly over the next 20 years, medical experts believe.
According to a new report released by Alzheimer’s Disease International, more than 35 million people worldwide will have dementia in 2010.
Expatriate workers living abroad may be interested to hear that the disease’s prevalence varies across the globe.
The increase is expected to be sharpest in Latin America, with the number of those affected growing by up to 146 per cent over the next 20 years in some parts.
Rises of 40, 63 and 89 per cent are expected in Europe, North America and Asia Pacific respectively.
Commenting on the findings, an Alzheimer’s Society spokesperson described the issue as a "worldwide problem" and said: "This data shows the scale of the challenge."
The charity called for more public awareness campaigns, improvements in dementia care and investment in research.
